                    SEPARATE STATEMENT OF 

Re:  Infinity Broadcasting Operations, Inc., Licensee of 
Station WKRK-FM, Detroit, Michigan, Forfeiture Order

     I strongly support the imposition of the statutory 
maximum forfeiture amount against Infinity Broadcasting 
Operations, Inc., licensee of station WKRK-FM, Detroit, 
Michigan, for the willful broadcast of grossly indecent 
language during the Deminski and Doyle show.  The egregious 
nature of the material broadcast clearly warrants the 
statutory maximum fine.  

     In addition, as I stated in April, the Commission has 
now given fair notice to broadcasters that it can and will 
avail itself of a range of enforcement sanctions when 
broadcasters violate our indecency rules.  These sanctions 
include the potential initiation of revocation proceedings 
for serious, repeated violations of our rules.  Broadcasters 
are also on notice that the Commission may find them liable 
for multiple violations that occur in a single program where 
statements can be viewed as separate indecent utterances.  
This approach could result in substantially higher 
forfeiture amounts in the future.  

     I am disappointed that the licensee in this case 
continues to challenge this sanction rather than accept 
responsibility for such an extreme violation of our rules.
