GALLUP, N.M.—Gallup Public Radio has been fined $12,000 by the Federal Communications Commission for failing to update its public file.

The Gallup Independent reports (http://bit.ly/z0cIwR) that the FCC fine came after the station admitted to the oversight in its license renewal application.

Station Manager Rachel Kaub says the punishment is fair and manageable. She says the problem has been fixed.

Kaub says her recommendation to the KGLP Board of Directors would be to pay the $12,000 immediately.

The station is known as KGLP and operates the radio station on 91.7 FM.
