First: the KZYZ (91.5) license has already been renewed.

According to our FCC specialist attorneys in Washington DC, the KZYX license is under review by the FCC because someone wrote to them complaining about our programming choices.  This is not a subject of concern to the license renewal process.  But when they get letters they put the application into a separate process.  That pipeline got very backed up with the government shutdown last fall, and we have been told it can taken many weeks beyond the usual, even if they aren't going to take any action on it.

We want our license to be renewed, obviously, and until it is, we'll all be a little anxious.

But to claim that KZYX is in "dire straits" over this, as has been recently circulating around the local rumor mills, is alarmist and false.
