My apologies if someone else has posted this and I've missed it, but Maupin (pop. 411) will not be getting a 50,000 watt C2, as I originally reported in Dec. 2008
Radio Maupin?: On Nov. 28, Maupin Broadcasting Company filed an application with the Federal Communications Commission seeking authority to construct a new Class C2 50,000 watt FM station at 96.7 mHz. The antenna would be located at 15 meters (roughly 50 feet) above ground level.
Harry Champlin is listed as the sole proprietor of Maupin Broadcasting Company.
According to a 2007 FCC filing, Champlin owns Chisolm Trail Broadcasting, based in Enid, Okla.
Chisolm Trail owns a pair of AM stations in Enid: which both feature a sports talk format: KCKC carries ESPN and the St. Louis Cardinals; KFXY has Fox Sports and the Kansas City Royals .
The company also owns KNID, an FM country station which carries the Oklahoma State Cowboys Mr. Champlin personally also owns Champlin Broadcasting, Inc. which owns KQOB FM, in North Enid which plays an adult contemporary variety mix known as the "Bob" format.
No information yet on proposed call letters or format.
Maupin's population, in the 2000 census was 411.
Not only did they withdraw, but the Commission deleted the channel from the table of allotments as seen here from back in June.
