A local group interested in buying the license for WXEL FM and TV in Palm Beach, Fla., has not submitted required documentation, according to owner Barry University, reports The Sun Sentinel. But the Community Broadcast Foundation of Palm Beach and Treasure Coast disagrees. “Now they’ve come back and say they want documentation of your funding,” said Green, who told the paper that Barry officials have refused to meet with his group. “If you meet with us, you can ask us anything you want.” The FCC may have to intervene, according to one source. Station ownership has been in flux for years.
