The Satellite Was Out of Sight, Radioactive Though


As one threat to satellite radio subsides, another one rears its head. Broadcasting & Cable reports:

If one California broadcaster has its way, Howard Stern won't be able to be his rude, crude and funny self on satellite radio, either.

Mount Wilson Broadcasters, owner of one FM and two AMs, has filed a petition for rulemaking with the FCC arguing that since indecency regulation applies to expression "by means of radio communications," and satellite radio is, well, radio communications, it should be subject to the same content restrictions.
