Fred Sands, the Santa Monica real estate broker who bought KBLA-AM last year and struggled to introduce an all-business news format, has thrown in the towel and signed a tentative agreement to lease the station to Korean-language programmers. Previously, Sands had let go more than half of his local staff, but insisted only a few weeks ago that he intended to stick with the all-business format by relying on Colorado Springs-based Business Radio Network.

Los Angeles radio journalist Richard Choi, who was arrested in South Korea after broadcasting a report about the financial troubles of a South Korean company, was found guilty of slander Tuesday in a Seoul court and fined $1,800. "This has been unreal," Choi, 49, said in a telephone interview from Seoul. "Can you imagine this? I'm just a reporter doing a story and they arrested me and put me in jail. I'm very, very angry." He said he may appeal the verdict.
