Printer-friendly version

MILWAUKEE, WI – A national media watchdog announced today it has filed petitions with the Federal Communications Commission – on behalf of citizens of the greater Milwaukee area – to deny radio licenses to Clear Channel's WISN-AM and Journal Communications' WTMJ-AM.


These legal challenges – unlike citizen petitions – can deny the stations' right to hold licenses to broadcast to the greater community of Milwaukee, including Rep. Paul Ryan's district.


The FCC must rule on the case by December 1. The decision could have national implications for Talk Radio. The FCC legal petitions can be found at:
