NOTICE OF APPARENT LIABIIUTY FOR FORFEITURE
Adopted: April 7, 2004
Released: April 8, 2004
By the Commission: Commissioners Copps and Adelstein issuing separate statements.
1. In this Notice of Apparent Liability For Forfeiture ("NAL"), issued pursuant to section
503(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the "Act"), and section 1.80 of the
Commission's rules,1 we find that the captioned licensees, all of which are subsidiaries of Clear Channel
Communications, Inc. ("Clear Channel"), apparently violated 18 U.S.C. 1464 and 47 C.F.R. 73.3999,
by willfully and repeatedly airing program material during two segments of the "Howard Stem Show" on
April 9, 2003, that apparently violate the federal restrictions regarding the broadcast of indecent material.2
Based upon the totality of the evidence before us and Clear Channel's history of repeated broadcasts of
indecent material over stations licensed to its subsidiaries, we conclude that these Clear Channel
subsidiaries are apparently liable for forfeitures totaling Four Hundred Ninety-Five Thousand Dollars
($495,000.00). Clear Channel Broadcasting Licenses, Inc. ("CCBL") is apparently liable for a monetary
forfeiture in the amount of Two Hundred Forty-Seven Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($247,500.00) for
nine (9) apparent indecency violations on its captioned stations. Citicasters Licenses, L.P. ("Citicasters")
is apparently liable for a monetary for forfeiture in the amount of One Hundred Sixty-five Thousand
147 U.S.C. 503(b); 47 C.F.R. 1.80.
2 See 18 U.S.C. 1464,47 C.F.R. 73.3999 and 47 U.S.C. 503(b).
