FCC Shuts Down Radio Station: The Federal Communications Commission has shut down Southern California's newest talk radio station, XEKAM-AM (950). The programs heard on XEKAM had been produced in a Hollywood studio but were transmitted from a signal based near Rosarito Beach in Mexico. FCC officials said the station failed to get the permit that is required for radio shows that originate in the United States but are delivered to a foreign transmitter for broadcast in the United States. The station faces fines of $10,000 for each day that it illegally broadcast. In the meantime, XEKAM officials hope to go back on the air later this week with programs produced at their Mexican studio.
