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.
