WLEX-TV fined $10,000 by FCC

Not filing your paperwork will cost serious money at the FCC. WLEX-TV of Lexington, KY, was fined $10,000.

In applying for a license renewal, the station conceded that it had not put copies of its program/issues list in its public file for an almost four-year stretch between 2001 and 2004. FCC rules require stations to file a list of the programs on issues of public importance they have aired.

The station told the FCC it reconstructed the lists, filed them and took steps to make sure it doesn't happen again. But taking into account the number of missing files and the length of the violation, the agency concluded that it was willful and repeated and levied the fine.
