LPFM Watch: Eight More Guel Applications Dismissed, While Seven Non-Profits Are Granted New LPFMs

On Monday, the FCC dismissed 8 more LPFM applications that were affiliated with Hispanic Christian Community Network owner Antonio Cesal Guel. As we’ve noted, Guel helped to file at least 245 LPFM applications in fall 2013  and several groups have expressed a myriad of concerns about these applications.
