           NOTICE OF APPARENT LIABILITY FOR FORFEITURE

                                     Released:  February 14, 2003

By the Enforcement Bureau, Los Angeles Office:

                        I.  INTRODUCTION

     1.   In this Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture, we 
find     that     Entravision     Communications      Corporation 
(``Entravsion''),  the  registered  owner  of  Antenna  Structure 
Registration  (``ASR'')   number   1066158  in   Newport   Beach, 
California, apparently willfully and repeatedly violated  Section 
17.57  of  the  Federal  Communications  Commission  (``FCC''  or 
``Commission'')  Rules  (``Rules'')  by  failing  to  notify  the 
Commission of a change  in ownership information.1  We  conclude, 
pursuant to Section 503(b) of the Communications Act of 1934,  as 
amended (``Act''),2  that Entravision  is apparently  liable  for 
forfeiture in the amount of three thousand dollars ($3,000).

                         II.  BACKGROUND

     2.   On November 26, 2002,  agents from the FCC  Enforcement 
Bureau's Los Angeles Field Office inspected the antenna structure 
at 33-37-55 north latitude and 117-56-18 west longitude, used  by 
Entravision for station KSSD-FM in Newport Beach, California.  At 
the time  of  the  inspection,  the  FCC's  ASR  database  listed 
Citicasters Co.,  as the  registered owner  of antenna  structure 
number 1066158. 

     3.   On December 19, 2002,  an official Notice of  Violation 
was issued by the  Los Angeles Field  Office to Citicasters  Co., 
for  a  rule  violation  noted  during  the  November  26,  2002, 
inspection of  the  tower.   On  January  6,  2003,  counsel  for 
Citicasters Co., advised  that antenna  structure number  1066158 
had been sold several years ago.   

     4.   Review of  the FCC  ASR database  on January  6,  2003, 
revealed that updated ownership information for antenna structure 
number 1066158 had been filed by Entravision on January 3, 2003. 

                        III.  DISCUSSION

     5.   Section 503(b) of the Act provides that any person  who 
willfully or repeatedly  fails to comply  substantially with  the 
terms and conditions of any  license, or willfully or  repeatedly 
fails to comply with any of the  provisions of the Act or of  any 
rule, regulation or  order issued by  the Commission  thereunder, 
shall be liable for a forfeiture penalty.  The term "willful"  as 
used in Section 503(b) has  been interpreted to mean simply  that 
the acts or  omissions are committed  knowingly and  ``repeated'' 
means the commission or omission of the act more than once or for 
more than one day.3

     6.   Section 17.57 of the  Rules requires antenna  structure 
owners to immediately  notify the Commission  using FCC Form  854 
upon any  change in  ownership information.  At the  time of  the 
inspection, Commission records indicated Citicasters Co., was the 
registered   owner   of   antenna   structure   number   1066158.  
Entravision acquired ownership of  this tower several years  ago, 
yet as of November 26, 2002, Entravision had failed to notify the 
Commission of  the  change in  ownership.   On January  3,  2003, 
Entravision filed the required updated ownership information  for 
the structure with the Commission.  

     7.   Based  on  the  evidence   before  us,  we  find   that 
Entravision failed to  immediately notify the  Commission of  the 
change in  ownership of  the structure  in willful  and  repeated 
violation of Section 17.57 of the Rules. 

     8.   Pursuant to  Section 1.80(b)(4)  of the  Rules and  The 
Commission's Forfeiture Policy Statement and Amendment of Section 
1.80 of  the  Rules  to Incorporate  the  Forfeiture  Guidelines, 
("Forfeiture Policy Statement"),4 the base forfeiture amount  for 
failure to  file  required forms  or  information is  $3,000.  In 
assessing the monetary forfeiture amount, we must also take  into 
account the statutory factors  set forth in Section  503(b)(2)(D) 
of the Communications  Act of 1934  (``Act''), as amended,  which 
include the  nature, circumstances,  extent, and  gravity of  the 
violation(s), and with  respect to  the violator,  the degree  of 
culpability, any history of prior  offenses, ability to pay,  and 
other such  matters as  justice  may require.5   Considering  the 
entire record and applying the statutory factors listed above,  a 
$3,000 forfeiture is warranted.

                      IV.  ORDERING CLAUSES

     9.   Accordingly, IT IS  ORDERED THAT,  pursuant to  Section 
503(b) of  the  Communications  Act  of  1934,  as  amended,  and 
Sections  0.111,  0.311  and  1.80  of  the  Commission's  Rules, 
Entravision Communications Corporation, is hereby NOTIFIED of its 
APPARENT LIABILITY  FOR  A  FORFEITURE in  the  amount  of  three 
thousand dollars ($3,000) for  willful and repeated violation  of 
Section 17.57 of the Rules.6

     10.  IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT, pursuant to Section 1.80 of 
the Rules, within thirty days of the release date of this  NOTICE 
OF APPARENT  LIABILITY, Entravision  Communications  Corporation, 
SHALL PAY the  full amount  of the proposed  forfeiture or  SHALL 
FILE a written statement seeking reduction or cancellation of the 
proposed forfeiture. 

     11.  Payment of  the forfeiture  may be  made by  mailing  a

Communications Commission, to the Forfeiture Collection  Section, 
Finance  Branch,  Federal  Communications  Commission,  P.O.  Box 
73482, Chicago, Illinois  60673-7482.  The  payment must  include

     13.  The Commission will not consider reducing or  canceling 
a forfeiture in response  to a claim of  inability to pay  unless 
the petitioner  submits: (1)  federal tax  returns for  the  most 
recent  three-year  period;  (2)  financial  statements  prepared 
according to generally accepted accounting practices  (``GAAP''); 
or (3)  some  other  reliable and  objective  documentation  that 
accurately reflects  the petitioner's  current financial  status.  
Any claim  of inability  to pay  must specifically  identify  the 
basis for the claim by  reference to the financial  documentation 
submitted.  

     14.  Requests for payment of the full amount of this  Notice 
of Apparent Liability  under an installment  plan should be  sent
