KM Communications GM Says Calvo-Tenorio FCC Complaint Incorrectly Cites His Company

285

Guam – The General Manager of the company that owns KTKB, the station that carries CW4 programming,  says he has been in contact with Marianas Media Investors [MMI] over the FCC complaint filed by the Calvo-Tenorio campaign, and he is confident MMI is “doing everything possible to maintain compliance with all relevant FCC regulations.”

In an email response to PNC News, KM Communications General Manager Kevin Bae also states that the complaint filed by Calvo-Tenorio Attorney Tom Fisher “incorrectly site [cites] KM Communications, Inc. as the licensee.”  Bae says that the licensee is KM Broadcasting of Guam, LLC.

Although Bae acknowledges that KM Broadcasting of Guam  is “entirely owned by the same owner of KM Communications, Inc.,” he maintains that KM Communications and KM Broadcasting of Guam “are two entirely separate entities.”

Bae’s entire response is printed below:

These are my comments regarding the complaints filed against KTKB-LD.

The complaints incorrectly site KM Communications, Inc. as the licensee. The licensee is KM Broadcasting of Guam, LLC., which is also entirely owned by the same owner of KM Communications, Inc., but they are two entirely separate entities.

KTKB-LD is a digital low power television station which is governed by a different set of FCC regulations from full power television. For example, digital low power television is NOT required by the FCC to maintain a public inspection file.

We are in contact with MMI and are confident they are doing everything possible to maintain compliance with all relevant FCC regulations for the digital LPTV classification of broadcasting.

Thank you.
