                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: July 17, 2012

   By the District Director, New Orleans  Office, South Central Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a  Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's rules, to Cox Communications  Louisiana LLC
       dba Cox Communications (Cox), operator of a cable system in Baton
       Rouge, LA.   This Notice may be combined with a further action, if
       further action is warranted.

    2. On July 20,  2011, agents of the Enforcement Bureau's  New Orleans 
       Office inspected  the cable system at 7401 Florida Blvd., Baton Rouge 
       and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S: 76.1703: "Cable operators airing children's programming must
   maintain records sufficient to verify compliance with S:  76.225 and make
   such records available to the public.  Such records must be maintained for
   a period sufficient to cover the limitations period specified in 47 U.S.C.
   503(b)(6)(B)."  Such records must be placed in the cable system's public
   file no later than the tenth day of the quarter following the quarter in
   which the covered programming aired and must be maintained for a period
   sufficient to cover the limitations period specified in 47 U.S.C.
   503(b)(6)(B) (one year).  See Children's Television Programming,
   Memorandum Opinion and Order, 6 FCC Rcd 5093, para. 23 (1991).

   At the time of inspection, agents found that Cox's public inspection file
   was missing the children's programming records for the second quarter of
   2011.  Such records should have been placed in the public inspection file
   no later than July 11, 2011.

    3.   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 and any remedial
       actions the system may have taken.  Therefore, Cox 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
       Cox to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or
       declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
       authorized officer of Cox with personal knowledge of the
       representations provided in Cox'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 knowledge has been produced. To
       knowingly and willfully make any false statement or conceal any
       material fact in reply to this Notice is punishable by fine or
       imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.

    5. All replies and documentation sent in response to this Notice should
       be marked with the File No. and NOV No. specified above, and mailed to
       the following address:
