Gaston College Station Fined by FCC for Public File Violation

Over on Radio Survivor I just reported the sad tale about Gaston College radio station WSGE getting fined $8,000 by the FCC for having an improperly maintained public file and for not making that file available to the public.

This is a good reminder to all college radio stations: double check that your public file is up to date and make sure that all DJs and staff know where it is and how to handle requests from the public!

There are folks out there making it their job to monitor stations for FCC violations (both on and off the air), so it's best to not give them anything to complain about.
