47 CFR Part 73

[MB Docket No. 11-54; RM-11624; DA 17-510]

Television Broadcasting Services; Augusta, Georgia

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Proposed rule; withdrawal.


SUMMARY: The Commission has before it a petition for rulemaking filed 
by Southern Media Holdings, Inc. (SMH), the former licensee of WFXG, 
Augusta, Georgia, requesting the substitution of channel 51 for channel 
31 at Augusta. WFXG License Subsidiary, LLC (Licensee) is now the 
licensee of WFXG. Station WFXG was allotted channel 51 as its post-
transition DTV channel and operated a licensed facility on that 
channel. In 2008, SMH filed a petition for rulemaking requesting that 
channel 31 be substituted for channel 51, and the Commission granted 
that request. SMH subsequently requested that the Commission change its 
channel back to channel 51 and we issued a Notice of Proposed 
Rulemaking, which was contested. On April 28, 2017, Licensee filed a 
letter withdrawing its pending request to substitute channel 51 for 
channel 31, explaining that it had licensed the channel 31 facility and 
that WFXG was reassigned to channel 36 in connection with the post-
incentive auction repacking of the broadcast television spectrum.

DATES: The proposed rule published on April 4, 2011 (76 FR 18497) is 
withdrawn as of June 12, 2017.
