KLSX FM Settles Stern Charges!
According to published reports, 97.1 KLSX FM, Los Angeles, has followed
in the foot steps of Infinity Broadcasting with an FCC settlement over
indecency charges brought against Howard's show back in 1992. The "voluntary
contribution" of $105,000 will be made to the US Treasury and in no
way means that KLSX is admitting any guilt or liability with regard to
whether the material was indecent or not.
With Greater Media's planned swap of KLSX FM, to CBS for WMMR FM, Philadelphia,
it was required to settle the case so that the swap would be approved by
the FCC. All unresolved matters with the FCC must be cleared in order for
the swap's paperwork to go through smoothly.
This move finally puts Howard's show on a CBS property in Los Angeles,
the nation's #2 radio market and gives Greater Media another outlet in
Philly, where they already own several popular signals.
