FCC Commands Pirate Booty In L.A.’s Valley


In twin forfeiture orders released late last week by the FCC, a pair of FM radio pirates operating in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley have been ordered to each pay up $25,000 for their egregious unauthorized activities.

RBR + TVBR OBSERVATION: Hooray! We love it when the FCC gets tough on broadcast buccaneers. With tougher enforcement, markets such as West Palm Beach and New York can also quash any of these faux FM players — and punish harshly those that dare go on the air without a license.
