From yesterday’s Federal Register –

RE: Petition for rulemaking filed by Southern Media Holdings, Inc. (“SMH”), the licensee of station WFXG, Augusta, Georgia, requesting the substitution of channel 51 for channel 31 at Augusta. SMH seeks this channel substitution as it cannot obtain the credit necessary to construct the channel 31 facility and states that the money required to construct the channel 31 facility will instead be used to serve other aspects of the public interest.
