Before the

Federal Communications Commission

Washington, D.C. 20554

In the Matter of

North County Broadcasting Corporation

Licensee of Station KFSD(AM)

Escondido, California







File No.: EB-10-SD-0028

NAL/Acct. No.: 201132940002

FRN: 0003770757

Facility ID No.: 49205

Memorandum opinion and order

Adopted: October 14, 2014 Released: October 15, 2014

By the Commission:

We deny the Application for Review filed by the North County Broadcasting Corporation (NCBC), licensee of Station KFSD(AM), Escondido, California. NCBC seeks review of a Memorandum Opinion and Order (MO&O) issued by the Enforcement Bureau (Bureau), which affirmed the Bureau's Forfeiture Order that found that NCBC was liable for a forfeiture in the amount of $4,800 for failing to ensure the operational readiness of its station's Emergency Alert System equipment, in violation of Section 11.35 of the Commission's rules. NCBC raises two issues on review, both of which were argued previously several times before the Bureau and rejected.

Upon consideration of the Application for Review and the entire record, we conclude that NCBC has not demonstrated that the Bureau erred. The Bureau, in the Forfeiture Order and the MO&O, properly decided the matters raised, and we uphold its decisions for the reasons stated therein.

ACCORDINGLY, IT IS ORDERED that, pursuant to Section 5(c)(5) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 1.115(g) of the Commission's rules, the Application for Review IS DENIED.
