BanJo Communications Group Inc. -- licensee of WCHN(AM), WBKT-FM and WKYZ-FM, all of Oneonta, N.Y. -- was fined $12,000 by the Federal Communications Commission Monday for persistent failure to maintain operational Emergency Alert System equipment.
The fine was reduced from the $23,000 originally announced in a June 18 notice of apparent liability.
The FCC said it cut BanJo slack in part because this was the company's first set of violations.
