                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released:  March 4,  2010

   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Multicultural Radio Broadcasting
       Licensee, LLC ("Multicultural"), licensee of radio stations WPAT in
       Paterson, New Jersey; WNSW in Newark, New Jersey; WWRU in Jersey City,
       New Jersey; and WKDM in New York, New York.

    2. On October 15, 2009 an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's New York
       Office inspected AM Radio Stations WPAT, WNSW, WWRU, and WKDM at the
       main studio in New York, New York, and observed the following

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.3526(e)(5): A station must retain in its public
        inspection file "[a] copy of the most recent, complete ownership
        report filed with the FCC for the station, together with any
        statements filed with the FCC certifying that the current report is
        accurate .... These materials shall be retained until a new, complete
        ownership report is filed. . . ." At the time of inspection, the
        public files for stations WPAT, WNSW, WWRU, and WKDM, contained only
        an ownership report from 2005. There were no current statements
        certifying that the 2005 ownership report is accurate.

   b. 47 C.F.R. S:  73.3526(e)(12): "For commercial AM and FM broadcast
   stations, every three months a list of programs that have provided the
   station's most significant treatment of community issues during the
   preceding three month period. [. . .] The lists described in this
   paragraph shall be retained in the public inspection file until final
   action has been taken on the station's license renewal application." At
   the time of inspection, station WWRU's public inspection file did not
   contain the issues/programs list for the second quarter of 2009.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Multicultural
       must submit a written statement concerning this matter within twenty
       (20) days of release of this Notice. The response must fully explain
       each violation, must contain a statement of the specific action(s)
       taken to correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and should
       include a time line for completion of pending corrective action(s).
       The response must be complete in itself and signed by a principal or
       officer of the licensee. 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:
