Corporate take-over of public radio stations in Massachusetts

Prevent the CSN International corporate take-over of radio stations in Massachusetts.

DATE OF ACTION:
Today
Letters must arrive in Washington, D.C. by this Friday, March 4, 2005.

ACTION:
Mail a brief note to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), opposing a waiver for CSN.

Stand up for local community media, for community access to the media that provide information vital to democracy.

The 400-station chain CSN International is grabbing stations in Boston and nationwide, including powerful stations that would interfere with Boston's long-standing non-commercial campus-community radio.

Dear Marlene,
I am writing in opposition to the petition for the "main studio" waiver that CSN International filed for WSMA radio, facility ID 122202 in Scituate, Massachusetts, FCC file number 2005 0201 BWB.

Listeners affected include those to WZBC 90.3 FM, Newton MA which serves the surrounding community with 1,000 Watts live-DJ programming (Boston College).

Thank you,


Stephen Garfield
Going in the mail tomorrow.
