Title:Broadcast Bureau's Comments on Petition to Enlarge Issues, December 4, 1978
Date:1978 Dec. 4, 2007

18 pages

Eighteen pages of comments from the Broadcast Bureau posed before the Federal Communications Commission on a petition to enlarge issues on behalf of Nuance Corporation, and make determinations against Midcom Corporation to survey and establish community broadcasting needs and interests in the Columbia, South Carolina area; Midcom sought a programming format that would serve African Americans in the Columbia area. Nuance Corporation alleged that Midcom's survey efforts were inadequate, and the results inaccurate. The comments also address payola allegations made against a principal of Midcom Corporation; investigate I. DeQuincey Newman's contact of South Carolina Senator Fritz Hollings to check upon the status of broadcast applications that were under consideration by the Federal Communications Commission; cite the failure of Midcom to faithfully represent financial information about two of its principals; and support Midcom in a challenge against the bona fide nature of its broadcast application. Midcom's license was ultimately granted by the Federal Communications Commission, and Nuance's was denied.
