Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
STA-SILENT REQUEST

WITW-LP HAS BEEN OFF THE AIR SINCE JUNE 4, 2018, WHEN A FIRE DESTROYED THE BUILDING HOUSING THE STATION'S TRANSMITTER EQUIPMENT, TOWER AND BROADCASTING ANTENNA. DUE TO THE PRESS OF OTHER MATTERS RELATED TO THE FIRE, LICENSEE INADVERTENTLY DID NOT PROVIDE THE COMMISSION WITH A 10-DAY NOTIFICATION CONCERNING ITS OFF-AIR STATUS, BUT LICENSEE HEREBY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO REMAIN SILENT WHILE IT CONSIDERS ITS OPTIONS FOR RETURNING THE STATION TO ON-AIR OPERATIONS.
