WACP just began broadcast operations with program test authority as of June 18, 2012. In its initial, start-up phase, there was confusion between the PSIP operations and required notifications to separate publishers of program guides. Therefore, the station did not initially provide information to publishers of programming guides. That confusion has been resolved at this point, however, and the station will be providing the requisite information to Tribune and Rovi. The licensee hereby requests a temporary waiver of Section 73.673's requirement regarding such provision of information for the initial three weeks of operation.
