REQUEST TO CLOSE DOCKET

Citizens Television, Inc. (“CTV”), the subject of the above docket, hereby represents the

following:

  1. The above matter was instituted by the filing of a Complaint from N’Zinga Shani in regards to CTV suspending her from using its facilities.
  1. On November 4, 2010, the Public Utility Regulatory Authority (“PURA”) held a Technical Meeting to allow the parties to be heard on said Complaint.
  1. On November 9, 2010, PURA issued a Procedural Order requiring CTV to comply with several directives.
  1. Since the issuance of the Procedural Order, CTV has complied with all directives,including but not limited to:
  1. Holding a meeting on December 9, 2010 with CTV producers to review the Rules and Procedures;
  2. Providing monthly notifications to PURA of the number of programs produced by Ms. Shani at CTV and the number of times that Ms. Shani’ s programs have aired; and
  1. Revising the Rules and Procedures to clarify the limits on airing programming.
  2. The above docket has been opened for 6.25 years.
  3. To date, CTV has provided approximately 31 monthly and yearly reports with no substantial change in their content.
