     Enforcement Bureau Consent Decree Includes Three-Year Compliance Plan

   Washington, D.C. - Liberman Broadcasting Inc. has agreed to pay $110,000
   and follow a three-year compliance plan to resolve an indecency
   investigation conducted by the Federal Communications Commission's
   Enforcement Bureau.

   The investigation stemmed from complaints about programming that included
   the Spanish-language television show Jose Luis Sin Censura (Jose Luis
   Uncensored), which aired on certain Liberman stations in Texas,
   California, and Utah.

   The Commission received a number of complaints about Jose Luis Sin
   Censura, including complaints filed by GLAAD and the National Hispanic
   Media Coalition in February 2011. The Bureau launched an investigation
   based on these and other complaints alleging, among other things, that the
   Jose Luis show on several occasions featured pornographic film performers
   and exotic dancers who engaged in behavior inconsistent with the
   Commission's indecency standards for broadcast programming that is aired
   during the day and early evening. Liberman discontinued broadcasting Jose
   Luis Sin Censura in August 2012. Liberman fully cooperated with the
   Bureau's investigation and, as part of the consent decree, committed to
   several ongoing efforts to help ensure future compliance with the
   Commission's indecency rules.

   Under the terms of today's consent decree, Liberman has agreed to make a
   voluntary payment in the amount of $110,000 to the U.S. Treasury. Liberman
   has also agreed to a three-year, comprehensive compliance plan, which
   includes: the appointment of a compliance officer; the establishment of
   operating procedures to ensure compliance; the creation of a compliance
   manual; annual employee training; and compliance reporting, including
   self-reporting of possible violations in the future.
