Update: FCC Snafu Leads To Erroneous Application Dismissal


In the Eugene-Springfield, Ore., market, is a religious entity named¬†Crossfire World Outreach Ministries.¬†Its offerings include “Crossfire TV,” and at present it has ties to a FCC licensee that’s the parent of a low-power TV station in the Oregon locale.

On Friday, the deal’s status changed to “pending.”
