iHeart has filed yet another extension for KWDZ to remain silent for six more months (180 days). Since their previous STA granted them silent authority until May 16th, 2017, I'm guessing that iHeart is trying to find a buyer for KWDZ's license and is hoping to buy some extra time with the FCC without having to reactivate 910. Details can be found here:
After doing some further research of the FCC database, it appears my original post was in error. The FCC has only granted Citicasters an additional 60 days extension for KWDZ to remain silent. According to this letter from the FCC to Citicasters, the original silent authority expired March 6, 2017. The new end date for the station's remain silent authority is May 16, 2017 at 12:01 AM. Anyone want to place a bet on whether Citicasters (a/k/a iHeart) will file another request to take the station silent after May 16th?
No bets here. I think the short extension is just because they have to resume operations by then anyway so making it longer would be confusing and pointless. (Of course that could describe a lot of what comes out of the FCC.)
Unless they come up with programming or more likely a sale, I would fully expect them to be on the air with temporary programming for a day or two then go silent again.
