FCC Cracks down on Elliot in the Morning

WASHINGTON – The feds cracked down on another foul-mouthed disc jockey yesterday, proposing a $247,500 fine for a shock jock known as Elliot in the Morning for talking dirty on the air. The Federal Communications Commission voted 4-1 to cite Clear Channel’s “Elliot” show for nine alleged violations “that involved graphic and explicit sexual material.”

It was the second large fine this year against the radio giant, which has recently promised to clean up its programming. Last month it fired the disc jockey known as Bubba the Love Sponge and took the Howard Stern show off the six Clear Channel stations that broadcast it.

The FCC is seeking the maximum $27,500 for each of the alleged violations, or $247,500 in all, from a March 13, 2003, broadcast that included a graphic discussion about pornographic film star Ron Jeremy. Portions of the conversation were rebroadcast eight times.

FCC Commissioner Michael Capps voted against the fine because he didn’t think it was severe enough. “Elliot in the Morning” is heard on Clear Channel stations WWDC in Washington; WRXL in Richmond, Va.; and WOSC in Bethany Beach, Del.

Clear Channel owns 1,200 stations nationwide.

The company said in a statement late Friday it will “investigate the situation fully and respond as appropriate.”

It said internal procedures at the show already have been changed, and the program now is broadcast with a 7-second delay. Pressure has grown on broadcasters to clean up their acts after Janet Jackson bared her right breast during the Super Bowl halftime show.
