FCC Revokes License for Cox Broadcast's WCGA-AM/Woodbine

The FCC's Media Bureau has revoked the license held by Cox Broadcast Group, for Talk WCGA-AM/Woodbine, GA -- which is currently off the air -- for failure to pay delinquent regulatory fees owed to the Commission. The agency also dismissed the pending applications for renewal of the station's license.

The Commission sent demand letters to Cox demanding payment of the delinquent regulatory fees debts and to date, Cox has not paid any of the debts. On October 28, 2019, the Media Bureau and the Office of Managing Director issued Cox an Order to Pay or to Show Cause and required Cox to file with the Bureau within sixty calendar days evidence of full payment of the debt, or show cause why the fees were inapplicable or should be waived or deferred.

The Order further stated that failure to provide such evidence of payment or to show cause within the time specified could result in revocation of the station's license. Cox did not file any response to the Order and as such the Commission revokef the station's license.

In these circumstances, the FCC said, where Cox has failed to pay its regulatory fees for multiple years and failed to respond to multiple letters regarding those delinquent debts, revocation is appropriate. The Revocation Order does not relieve Cox of its obligation to pay any debt, including any regulatory fee, or any other financial obligation that has or may become due resulting from the authorizations held until revocation.
