WLSW escapes part of major fine

Tom Taylor’s NOW column reported this morning that the FCC has given Stan Wall’s WLSW-FM (103.9 Connellsville) a 50 percent break on the $15,000 fine it charged on the station in 2011. The fine was for failure to have quarterly issues/program reports for nearly 4 years in the public file when the Commission visited in 2010. A subsequent visit in 2011 showed more quarterly reports were missing. The easing of the fine was because of inability to pay, rather than the explanations of a damaged storage facility and possible employee theft. The FCC warns that it won’t be so generous if there are future transgressions.

    A $7,500 fine might wipe out a year’s worth of billings for that station.

    Stan Wall Should Contact Frankie Day, Frankie Not Only Generates Ad Dollars for his AirTime. But He Promotes The Radio Station With his Personal Appearances and Remote Broadcasts.Thus Increasing Listeners And ad Revenue for The Other Shows.
