Pennsylvania Licensee Facing License Revocation Gets Lurid With FCC


The facts surrounding the felony conviction of Central Pennsylvania radio station owner Roger Wahl, as previously reported by local media and by RBR+TVBR, involve some rather disturbing tales of voyeurism, and finding men to engage in unwanted sexual activities with a local woman.

The conviction prompted the FCC to conduct a License Revocation Hearing, for which Wahl is serving as his own legal counsel, that will eventually determine whether or not he’s ultimately able to retain control of his radio station, WQZS-FM 93.3 in Meyersdale, Pa.

Officially known as Media Bureau item No. 21-401, the hearing under the office of the FCC’s Administrative Law Judge has already created fireworks between ALJ Jane Hinckley Halprin and Wahl, who was warned to treat the proceeding no different than an in-court legal affair. Now, Wahl has provided answers to a second set of interrogatories from the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau.

Some of Wahl’s responses are eye-opening, and could further cloud his chances of remaining a licensee.
