‘Campesina’ Owner Accepts Hefty Underwriting Penalty


WASHINGTON, D.C. — In the nation’s 14th-largest market, one of the most-listened-to radio stations serving the region’s Spanish-speaking Hispanic audience has long been KNAI-FM 88.3, a noncommerical Class C1 facility that has been the affiliate of the Cesar Chávez Foundation‘s regional Mexican “La Campesina Network.

Unfortunately, KNAI and a sister station in the San Joaquin Valley of California didn’t play by the FCC’s rules when it came to the Commission’s underwriting laws.

To settle the matter, the Foundation has entered into a Consent Decree with the Enforcement Bureau that involves a compliance plan and a hefty civil penalty due to the U.S. Treasury.
