By the Chief, Media Bureau:
1. In this Order, we adopt and incorporate by reference the attached Consent Decree
entered into by the Media Bureau ("Bureau") and Vermont State Colleges ("Licensee"), licensee
of Station WVTC(FM), Randolph Center, Vermont ("Station"). The Consent Decree resolves
issues arising from the Bureau's review of the captioned license renewal application. These
issues include whether Licensee violated Section 73.3527' of the Commission's rules ("Rules"),
which governs the maintenance of a noncommercial station's public file; Section 73.35392 of the
Rules, which sets forth the filing deadline for license renewal applications; Section 301 of the
Communications Act of 1934, as amended ("Act),3 which requires a valid authorization from the
Commission to operate a broadcast station; and Section 73.3615 of the Rules, which mandates the
filing of ownership reports.4
2. The Consent Decree provides, among other things, that Licensee and, if
applicable, its successors and assigns, will institute and maintain, for three years, a Compliance
Plan" for the Station and make an eight thousand, five hundred dollar ($8,500) voluntary
contribution to the United States Treasury.
3. After reviewing the terms of the Consent Decree, we believe that the public
interest will be served by its adoption. We also conclude that the matters raised in our review of
the captioned application do not raise any substantial or material questions of fact regarding
Licensee's qualifications to remain a Commission licensee.
