NOTICE OF APPARENT LIABILITY FOR FORFEITURE AND ORDER
Adopted: February 7, 2012 Released: February 7, 2012
By the District Director, Dallas Office, South Central Region, Enforcement Bureau:
I. In this Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture and Order (NAL), we find that The L.R.
Radio Group, Inc. (L&R), licensee of Station KPIR, in Granbury, Texas, apparently willfully and repeatedly
violated Section 73.3526 of the Commission's rules (Rules)' by failing to maintain and make available a
complete public inspection file. We conclude that L&R is apparently liable for a forfeiture in the amount of
ten thousand dollars ($10,000). In addition, no later than thirty (30) calendar days from the date of this
NAL, L&R must submit a statement signed under penalty of perjury by an officer or director of L&R that
Station KPIR is maintaining a complete public inspection file.
2. On May 17, 2011, an agent from the Enforcement Bureau's Dallas Office (Dallas Office)
inspected Station KPIR's main studio during regular business hours. The agent requested to inspect Station
KPIR's public inspection file, but the station was only able to produce a folder of advertisements and
marketing material. The station was unable to produce any issues/programs lists, service contour map,
ownership reports, or the most recent Public and Broadcasting. There was no evidence that the station had
ever maintained any of these items in its public inspection file.
3. Section 503(b) of the Act provides that any person who willfully or repeatedly fails to
comply substantially with the terms and conditions of any license, or willfully or repeatedly fails to comply
with any of the provisions of the Act or of any rule, regulation, or order issued by the Commission
thereunder, shall be liable for a forfeiture penalty. Section 312(t)(1) of the Act defines willful as the
"conscious and deliberate commission or omission of [any] act, irrespective of any intent to violate" the law.3
The legislative history to Section 312(f)( 1) of the Act clarifies that this definition of willful applies to both
Sections 312 and 503(b) of the Act,4 and the Commission has so interpreted the term in the Section 503(b)
' 47 C.F.R. 73.3526.
