Yes, Magic 106.7, you have to pay the fine....




Back in 2008, under program director Don Kelley, Magic 106.7 ran a contest where they didn't quite explain all the rules on the air. Apparently a disgruntled contestant took offense and files a complaint. The FCC came knocking.

The station got an admonishment from the FCC and a paltry $4,000 fine.

I would think that would be the end of the story, but apparently the $4,000 was too much for Greater Media (Magic 106.7's parent company).

They asked that the penalty simply be an admonishment without the fine. The FCC's response? Don't push your luck!
