Re: Howard Stern In Denver

There's another reason as well.  The FCC.  In Greasman's case, he made a
racist remark which I guarantee prompted someone to write the FCC a complaint
letter.  The agency seems to be preoccupied with race, with their continued
enforcement of EOE regulations while they've relaxed enforcement of many
others.  Infinity was probably trying to cover its butt by firing Grease if
the FCC decided to question the licence renewal for that station--WARW.
Stern's remarks, although tasteless, are not obscene or racist--which are the
requirements for an FCC crackdown.  In addition, Sterns' station in Denver,
KXPK, is NOT owned by Infinity, so if there is any FCC action, it won't
directly affect Mel & Company.....
