$25K Fine For Missing Quarterly Issues


This NAL (Notice of Apparent Liability) is levied against Pacific Empire Radio owners of Oregon stations KLBM and KUBQ in La Grande, KBKR and KKBC in Baker and KRJT in Elgin. The Commission says the company was missing issues and programs lists for twelve consecutive quarters (2008-2011) at all the stations. Pacific Empire stated that each of the stations was missing the same issues and programs lists from July 2008 to August 11, 2011 due to the lack of transparency between new management and outgoing management. In this process the files were either misplaced or missing altogether.”
