   Released: April 9, 2013

   By the Resident Agent, Houston Office, South Central Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules)^ to DAIJ Media, LLC, licensee of
       radio station KBRZ in Missouri City, Texas. Pursuant to Section
       1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance of this Notice does not preclude the
       Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted, including issuing
       a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for the violation(s)
       noted herein.^

    2. On March 25, 2013, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Houston Office
       inspected Station KBRZ's main studio located at 10614 Rockley Road,
       Houston, Texas, and observed the following violation(s):

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 11.56: "Obligation to process [Common Alerting Protocol]
        CAP-formatted EAS messages. (a) On or by June 30, 2012 EAS
        participants must have deployed operational equipment that is capable
        of the following: (1) Acquiring EAS alert messages in accordance with
        the monitoring requirements in S 11.52(d)(2); (2) Converting EAS
        alert messages that have been formatted pursuant to the Organization
        for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS)
        Common Alerting Protocol..." At the time of inspection, Station KBRZ
        did not have the required CAP-formatted EAS equipment installed.

    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 licensees.

    4. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended,^ and Section 1.89 of the Rules, we seek additional
       information concerning the violations and any remedial actions taken.
       Therefore, DAIJ Media, LLC, must submit a written statement concerning

       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.^

       LLC to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or
