                        STATEMENT OF 

     Re:  Infinity Broadcasting Operations, Inc., 
     Licensee of Station WKRK-FM, Detroit, Michigan; 
     Memorandum Opinion and Order

     I am pleased that today we deny a reconsideration 
petition and allow this case to proceed.  I strongly 
supported 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'' on January 9, 2002.  The 
material was some of the most egregious broadcast indecency 
that I have yet encountered.  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.
