Exhibit 1
Description:
SILENT STA REQUEST

KEZF MURRAY, UT, FACILITY ID 58303, SEEKS TO REMAIN SILENT FOR UP TO 180 DAYS WHILE IT REBUILDS ITS TOWER AT ITS LICENSED TOWER SITE.   THE TOWER COLLAPSED SEVERAL YEARS AGO. KEZF HAS JUST RECENTLY ACQUIRED BY KONA COAST RADIO, LLC ('KCR') WITH THE CONSUMMATION NOTICE FILED ON OCTOBER 19TH, 2018. THE PRIOR OWNER HAS BEEN OPERATING KEZF WITH A TEMPORARY ANTENNA SYSTEM LOCATED AT ITS STUDIO SITE UNDER A STA AUTHORIZATION, BESTA-20180605AAG. THIS STUDIO SITE IS UTILIZED BY SEVERAL OTHER CURRENTLY OWNED STATIONS BY THE PRIOR OWNER OF KEZF. THUS, AS PART OF THE PURCHASE AGREEMENT, KCR WAS REQUIRED TO CEASE BROADCASTING FROM THIS TEMP TRANSMITTER LOCATION AND RELOCATE KEZF. ALSO AS PART OF THE PURCHASE AGREEMENT, KCR HAS ACQUIRED THE CURRENTLY LICENSED TOWER SITE OF KEZF. KCR HAS ALREADY PARTIALLY REBUILT THE FORMER TOWER AND IS CURRENTLY UTILIZING THE TOWER SITE FOR AN STA OPERATION OF NOW CO-OWNED KNIT SALT LAKE CITY, UT. A PLANNED DIPLEX OPERATION OF KNIT AND KEZF AT THIS TOWER SITE. NEW GUY ANCHORS HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTED AND THE TOWER IS APPROXIMATELY HALF WAY REBUILT. ONCE THE TOWER IS FULLY COMPLETED, KEZF WILL RESUME NORMAL BROADCASTING FROM ITS LICENSED TOWER SITE. KCR EXPECTS ACTION ON ITS APPLICATION TO CO-LOCATE KNIT AT THIS SITE SOON. ONCE IT IS GRANTED, IT WILL QUICKLY INSTALL THE NEW DIPLEX FILTER NETWORKS AT THE SITE AND COMMENCE BROADCASTING AT THIS SITE WITH BOTH KNIT AND KEZF.
