    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

    Have you ever glanced at a jock’s FCC license on a wall – (or a loose file on the jock around a station office)

    that you THOUGHT was the real name of that very particular jock?..

    …and found out that it WASN’T?..

    Steve’s first show ended with a minute talk – calling it his ‘virgin voyage’ on the station,

    sounding ‘tracked’ over the intro to Eagles ‘Hotel California’

    The volume on this was also ‘low’; makes one wonder…
