Another week, another embarrassment for radio

This time, its WFNY-FM’s (“Free FM” – or “FraudFM” as many have dubbed it) The Dog House with JV and Elvis, suspended indefinitely for racist comments made on the air in a phone prank made to a Chinese restaurant.

This follows another incident last week at a Augusta, Ga. station, where a talk-show host repeated Don Imus’ infamous comments on the air -during a phone call to a black radio station.

We are losing analog signals for TV in 2009. Maybe the federal government should take away the analog signals for radio instead.
