AM station granted move to new city

Lobelville, Tennessee: 1570KHz:
WNKX granted move from Centerville.
Power to be decreased from 5,000 watts day/77 watts night to 1,000 watts day/66 watts night.
Tower to move to 35-46-01N/87-49-52W, a move of roughly 22 miles due west.
---------------
This move was required to allow FM station WFGZ 94.5 to move from Lobelville to the Nashville neighborhood of Bellevue. The FCC does not allow deletion of a town's only radio station; moving WNKX to Lobelville replaced the lost FM service. WNKX-FM continues to operate in Centerville, so that town does not lose its only station.
