          monetary  forfeiture in  the amount  of seven  thousand 
          dollars  ($7,000)   to  Radio   Centre  Inc.   (``Radio 
          Centre''), licensee  of WAGC(AM), Centre, Alabama,  for 
          willful violation of Section 73.49 of the  Commission's 
          Rules  (``Rules'').1   The  noted  violation   involves

     3.   Finally, we note  that it  is unclear  from the  record 
before us what steps, if any,  Radio Centre has taken to  correct 
the violation cited in the NAL and to ensure that this  violation 
does not  recur in  the future.   Accordingly, we  will  require,

amended, (``Act''),3 that  Radio Centre  submit a  report to  the 
Enforcement Bureau within 30  days of the  release of this  order 
outlining what measures it has taken or will take to correct  the 
violation and  ensure that  it does  not recur.   Radio  Centre's 
report  must  be  submitted  in  the  form  of  an  affidavit  or 

     4.   ACCORDINGLY, IT IS  ORDERED that,  pursuant to  Section 
503(b) of the Act,5 and  Sections 0.111, 0.311 and 1.80(f)(4)  of 
the  Rules,6  Radio  Centre,  Inc.  IS  LIABLE  FOR  A   MONETARY 
FORFEITURE in  the  amount  of  $7,000  for  willfully  violating 
Section 73.49 of the Rules.

     5.   Payment of the forfeiture shall  be made in the  manner 
provided for in Section 1.80 of  the Rules within 30 days of  the 
release of this Order.  If the forfeiture is not paid within  the 
period specified, the case may  be referred to the Department  of 
Justice for collection  pursuant to Section  504(a) of the  Act.7  
Payment shall be made by  mailing a check or similar  instrument, 
payable  to   the   order   of   the   ``Federal   Communications 
Commission,'' to the Federal Communications Commission, P.O.  Box 
73482, Chicago,  Illinois 60673-7482.   The payment  should  note

     6.   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, pursuant to Section  308(b)
