FCC, Fisher Reach Consent Decree Over KVI Contest


The FCC and FISHER BROADCASTING-SEATTLE RADIO, L.L.C. have entered a consent decree over a contest at Talk KVI-A/SEATTLE that turned out to be rigged by a former employee. FISHER will pay a “voluntary contribution” of $7,000 to the U.S. Treasury to settle the case.

The 2007 contest, which involved $1,000 prizes for listeners who called when they heard their names; the former employee allegedly had her friends register and were told when to listen, a situation the station said it only knew after the fact, when it called police.
