Controversial radio presenter Howard Stern will return to the airwaves in
five out of the six American cities where his programme was pulled off air due
to his "indecent" remarks.
Stern's show will now return to stations run by INFINITY BROADCASTING in
Orlando, Florida; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; San Diego, California; Rochester,
New York; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
In February (04), media company CLEAR CHANNEL pulled Stern from six of the
stations it owns after the FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION (FCC) fined the
company $495,000 (GBP275,000).
Stern says, "They (Clear Channel) don't want me back on in these markets
because I'll quickly rise to number one in every one of them."
Stern's programme will also begin broadcasting in Tampa, Florida and in
Houston and Austin, both in Texas, for the first time.
