Title:Broadcast Bureau's reply to proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law, February 1, 1980
Date:1980 Feb. 1, 2007

12 pages

Twelve page reply from the Broadcast Bureau of the Federal Communications Commission to proposed findings posed by Nuance Corporation as part of an ongoing legal proceeding with competing broadcast company Midcom Corporation to establish a radio station in Columbia, South Carolina.Nuance alleged that Midcom's survey of the Columbia community and its leaders was inadequate; the Broadcast Bureau concluded that Midcom's survey satisfied compliance standards. Nuance also argued that payola allegations against a principal of Midcom Corporation who also misrepresented himself to FCC investigators should disqualify Midcom as a licensee; the Broadcast Bureau concluded that Nuance failed to meet its burden of proceeding with respect to the issue. Midcom's license was ultimately granted by the Federal Communications Commission, and Nuance's was denied.
