Scripps gets nailed with a $1.13 million fine from the FCC in an investigation from the ex-Cordillera stations over tower lighting and maintenance at 10 facilities in 5 states. Cordillera also had failed to notify the FCC of its purchase of two antenna structures.

Under an agreement with the Enforcement Bureau, Scripps has not only agreed to pay the $1.13 million fine but also implement a five-year compliance plan that will include employee training across the entire company, the appointment of a compliance officer to keep tabs on its towers, and filing of a series of reports detailing how it is complying with the consent decree. Harold said in the order that after reviewing the facts of the case, she concluded it would be in the best interest of the FCC to settle the case – in part because Scripps agreed to take responsibility for the violations that predated its ownership of the stations.

When Scripps bought Cordillera’s 15 stations for $521 million two years ago, it also inherited the outstanding investigation.

Seems kind of messed up that Scripps has to pay for Cordillera's failings, but I guess they assume Scripps surely would have been aware of the state of the towers of the stations they were buying? And that two towers were bought without the FCC ever knowing? That or since there isn't a Cordillera to fine anymore...

That's normal in the course of business when you buy a company. Scripps also seems like it wanted to settle the matter quickly. Reading the consent decree, this one started when an aircraft hit the KATC-owned tower in Kaplan, Louisiana (which was home to an LPB transmitter and KAJN-FM).
