...And Tack On Another $10K For A Fence


Equity gets hammered with another $10,000, this one for not having a locked fence around WCMC-AM in Wildwood, New Jersey. Equity did not deny that a portion of its fencing was missing allowing unrestricted public access, but requested a fine reduction because it repaired the fence as quickly as practicable (it was destroyed by a hurricane) and it has a history of compliance with the Commission?s rules. The Commission denied that request. After telling the station to shut down or install a temporary fence, the Commission followed up with another inspection and found the station still on the air, and no fence. That didn't sit well with the agent, of course, and the fine was upheld. A fence was constructed a few days after the second inspection. Read the forfeiture order HERE
