I am not sure I'd brag about that, if I were Mitt.  Mr LaFount left the 
FRC and bought some radio stations (including the old WORL in Boston); 
he later ended up in the midst of a financial scandal, along with his 
business partner Arde Bulova, and had to divest of the stations, as the 
FCC accused him and his partner of illegal stock transactions, 
irregularities with station billing, etc.
