Federal regulators Wednesday proposed a total of $220,000 in indecency fines against the owner of two Kansas radio stations for broadcasting a "Naked Twister" game with local strippers and graphic interviews with porn stars.
The Federal Communications Commission said the material, which aired during the "Dare and Murphy Show," was indecent and clearly intended to "pander to and titillate the audience."
The commission cited four broadcasts during April and May of 2002.
They aired on stations KQRC-FM in Westwood, Kan., and KFH-AM in Wichita, Kan., which are owned by Bala Cynwyd, Pa.-based Entercom Communications Corp.
The agency proposed a $27,500 fine -- the maximum allowed at the time -- for each of the four broadcasts by the two stations for a total penalty of $220,000.
