If indeed their current property was taken by eminent domain, meaning they were paid above fair market value for the property (which is the common practice), I want to apologize to anyone affiliated with the radio station. However, this is not a process that happens overnight, it is very lengthy and can be challenged by the property owner. You mentioned two years, so that is definitely time to prepare.
But no complaints to the FCC, donít think Elmhurst would be bothering anybody in Cincinnati trying to listen. I listen to Dan Patrick because they run him on a loop all day and he just stayed on the air running. Donít know how they cannot have anybody monitoring the station to know if they are on the air, so that is my issue. I have previously stated on this board that I knew the original owners of the facility and that is why I know about the xmtr site relocation in the 80s.
Not trying to kick a guy when heís down, I just believe there is a real lack of regard for operating stations in the public interest nowadays. And I saw the filings from the guy at WLAK, and that is one of the most poorly written petitions to deny I have ever seen. The commission decided correctly against him and for Elmhurst. I think that frequency is just cursed. Wishing all of you at the station the very best.
