There's also a silent STA that was filed in January 2014, indicating
that "THIS AM STATION DOES NOT GENERATE REVENUES CLOSE TO WHAT IS
REQUIRED TO COVER THE COST OF OPERATIONS. THE LICENSEE HAS SUSPENDED
BROADCASTING IN ORDER TO REEVALUATE THE STATION BUSINESS PLAN." But that

have resumed operations or filed for an extension no later than 5/30/2014.
