Family Stations, Inc.
On the FCC's silent list as of April, 2009.  Had a construction permit for a significant power and coverage increase, but canceled it in October 2010.  Family Radio received another permit in December, 2010 with appears to be identical facilities to the canceled permit from October.  That permit was issued a license to cover in early February 2011, which means the station should now be back on the air.  The station has historically had a waiver for main studio to rebroadcast the Family Radio station in Birmingham, WBFR.  That has been amended as of December 2012 to reflect the actual parent station, KEAR in San Francisco.
