Maybe CC wasn't being too duplicitous by axing Stern's show on those
aforementioned stations...

>From a Wall Street Journal article I found online:
"(Feb. 25) -- Bubba the Love Sponge was squeezed out of his job as host
of a Tampa, Fla., radio talk show Tuesday by the station's owner, Clear
Channel Communications Inc. He thus became the first notable casualty of
a move to clean up the acts of the nation's shock jocks.

"Bubba, whose real name is Todd Clem, has long been controversial. In
January, the Federal Communications Commission proposed a $755,000 fine
against Clear Channel for 26 alleged violations of indecency laws by Mr.
Clem dating back to 2001."
