47 CFR Part 73

[MB Docket No. 13-302, RM-11709; DA 13-2391]

Television Broadcasting Services; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The Commission has before it a petition for rulemaking filed 
by Family Broadcasting Group, Inc. (``Family Broadcasting''), the 
licensee of station KSBI(TV), channel 51, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 
requesting the substitution of channel 23 for channel 51 at Oklahoma 
City. 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. Family Broadcasting has entered into such a 
voluntary relocation agreement with U.S. Cellular Corporation and 
states that operation on channel 23 would eliminate potential 
interference to and from wireless operations in the adjacent Lower 700 
MHZ A Block.

DATES: Comments must be filed on or before January 10, 2014, and reply 
comments on or before January 27, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Federal Communications Commission, Office of the Secretary, 
445 12th Street SW., Washington, DC 20554. In addition to filing 
comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve counsel for 
petitioner as follows: John W. Bagwell, Esq., Lerman Senter PLLC, 2000 
K Street NW., Suite 600, Washington, DC 20006.

to this proceeding. Members of the public should note that from the 
time a Notice of Proposed Rule Making is issued until the matter is no 
longer subject to Commission consideration or court review, all ex 
parte contacts (other than ex parte presentations exempt under 47 CFR 
1.1204(a)) are prohibited in Commission proceedings, such as this one, 
which involve channel allotments. See 47 CFR 1.1208 for rules governing 
restricted proceedings.
