KDAY To Pay For EAS Tone Atonement


LOS ANGELES — Nearly two years ago, twin FMs in a simulcast aired a weather teaser for its morning show that included a simulation of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) attention signal.

That’s a no-no, and the FCC has now acted against the properties, owned by Meruelo Media.
