                        STATEMENT OF 

     Re:  Infinity Radio License, Inc., Licensee of 
     Station WLLD(FM), Holmes Beach, Florida; 
     Memorandum Opinion and Order

     I support this Order affirming a forfeiture for the 
broadcast of indecent material at a time when children may 
be in the audience.  Were I acting on a clean slate, I would 
have imposed a higher fine given the nature of the broadcast 
and the licensee's history.  Nevertheless, recognizing that 
four and a half years have already passed since this 
broadcast, I am reluctant to start the process anew.  The 
unnecessary delay in this case is regrettable.  Such delay 
can impede the Commission's ability to meet our obligation 
to enforce statutory and regulatory provisions restricting 
broadcast indecency.  

     Since I arrived at the Commission, we have greatly 
stepped up our enforcement against indecent broadcasts.  I 
expect that these stepped-up actions will convince 
broadcasters that they cannot ignore their responsibility to 
serve the public interest and to avoid the broadcast of 
indecent material over the public airwaves.
