    K-WHAT? Unbuilt Maui TV station lands questionable call letters


    THE call letters KUNT have landed at a yet-unbuilt low-power digital television station in Wailuku, Maui.

    Alarmingly similar to a word the dictionary says is obscene, the call letters were among a 15-page list of new call letters issued by the Federal Communications Commission and released this week.

    The same station owner also received KWTF for a station in Arizona.

    From Skokie, Ill., comes a sincere apology "to anyone that was offended," said Kevin Bae, vice president of KM Communications Inc., who requested and received KUNT and KWTF. It is "extremely embarrassing for me and my company and we will file to change those call letters immediately."
