                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: December 31, 2009

   By the District Director, Philadelphia Office, Northeast Region,
   Enforcement Bureau

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Forever Broadcasting LLC, the
       licensee of AM Radio Stations WQWK and WRSC in State College,
       Pennsylvania. This Notice may be combined with a further action, if
       further action is warranted.

    2. On September 17, 2009, an agent of the Commission's Philadelphia
       Office inspected radio stations WQWK and WRSC located in State
       College, Pennsylvania, and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S: 11.52(d): "Broadcast stations and cable systems and wireless
   cable systems must monitor two EAS sources. The monitoring assignments of
   each broadcast station and cable system and wireless cable system are
   specified in the State EAS Plan and FCC Mapbook. . . ."

   The agent found that stations WQWK and WRSC, which are co-located and
   share EAS equipment, were monitoring only one EAS source.

    3. As the nation's emergency warning system, the Emergency Alert System
       is critical to public safety, and we recognize the vital role that
       broadcasters play in ensuring its success. The Commission takes
       seriously any violations of the Rules implementing the EAS and expects
       full compliance from its regulatees. Pursuant to Section 403 of the
       Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 1.89 of the
       Commission's Rules, we seek additional information concerning the
       violation(s) and any remedial actions the station may have taken. 
       Therefore, Forever Broadcasting LLC must submit a written statement
       concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of release of this
       Notice. The response (i) must fully explain each violation, including
       all relevant surrounding facts and circumstances, (ii) must contain a
       statement of the specific action(s) taken to correct each violation
       and preclude recurrence, and (iii) must include a time line for
       completion of any pending corrective action(s). The response must be
       complete in itself  and must not be abbreviated by reference to other
       communications or answers to other notices.

    4. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Commission's Rules, we direct
       Forever Broadcasting LLC to support its response to this Notice with
       an affidavit or declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated
       by an authorized officer of Forever Broadcasting LLC with personal
       knowledge of the representations provided in Forever Broadcasting
       LLC's response, verifying the truth and accuracy of the information
       therein, and confirming that all of the information requested by this
       Notice which is in the licensee's possession, custody, control, or
