Another Class A TV demoted


A Class A television station in Burlington VT is the latest to be busted to mere LPTV status, and like many before it, the process started with the failure to file required FCC documents on children’s programming.

The station is WBVT-CA, licensed to Convergence Entertainment and Communications LLC.
The missing document was Form 398, the Children’s Television Programming Report. Six quarters worth of reports never came in.

The FCC sent letters of inquiry on the matter on two occasions, neither of which received a response. It then sent the station an order to show cause why it should not be degraded. It didn’t respond to that either.

So, it is now an LPTV.
