SOUTHERN RHODE ISLAND PUBLIC RADIO BROADCASTING, INC. Found Southern Rhode
Island Public Radio Broadcasting, Inc., licensee of noncommercial
educational station WBLQ(FM), apparently liable for $1,000 for violating
Section 399B of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended ("the Act), and
Section 73.503 of the Commission's rules, by broadcasting impermissible
donor and underwriting announcements. By Notice of Apparent Liability for
Forfeiture. Action by Chief, Enforcement Bureau. Adopted: May 5, 2000.
(DA No. 00-1011). MMB
Couple of questions out of this:
1. Does something like this come from a complaint filed by members of the
public? Another radio station? Or is the FCC actually keeping an eye on
non-comms and how they handle underwriting?
2. What exactly is an "impermissible donor and underwriting annoucement"?
Is this the FCC's way of saying "commercials"?
