47 CFR Part 73

[MB Docket No. 11-192; RM-11646, DA 12-91]

Television Broadcasting Services; Lincoln, NE

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The Commission issues this final rule in response to a 
petition for rulemaking filed by Lincoln Broadcasting, LLC (``LBL''), 
licensee of KFXL-TV, channel 51, Lincoln, Nebraska, requesting the 
substitution of channel 15 for channel 51 at Lincoln. While the 
Commission instituted a freeze on the acceptance of full power 
television rulemaking petitions requesting channel substitutions in May 
2011, it subsequently announced that it would lift the freeze to accept 
such petitions for rulemaking seeking to relocate from channel 51 
pursuant to a voluntary relocation agreement with Lower 700 MHz A Block 
licensees. Furthermore, according to LBL, this channel substitution is 
in the public interest as it will increase the station's service area 
by almost 700, 000 persons.

DATES: This rule is effective March 9, 2012.
