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
Looks like the Feds are crackin’ down…
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?..
..I have in my radio rounds…IT HAPPENS!
..yes, but do the ‘chatty Djs’ waste ANYBODY’S time?…
..and ‘flaunty’? – –
(ehhhmmm) – – ‘maybe’…
..and while we’re on the subject:
I long for any GOOD/ENTERTAINING commercial AM radio ‘anywhere’ – today…
Right on, Paul – Couldn’t agree more –
Bonaduce is a ‘RADIO LOCUST’…
..He’ll now hop from market to market in search of ANY radio job that’ll be stable..
Everett radio has always had MORE problems than neighboring Seattle’s…
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…
In addition, Slaton will also act as 95.7’s music director…
Here’s a 1½ minute video of Steve with Bob Rivers re the announcement:
