                        STATEMENT OF 

      Re:  Infinity Broadcasting Operations, Inc., 
     Licensee of Station WKRK-FM, Detroit, Michigan; 
     Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture

     I support this Notice of Apparent Liability for the 
broadcast of indecent material at a time when children may 
be in the audience.  This NAL furthers our responsibility to 
enforce statutory and regulatory provisions restricting 
broadcast indecency.  While this case predates another case 
in which this station aired some of the most egregious 
broadcast indecency that I have yet encountered, we impose 
the statutory maximum fine here and remind broadcasters that 
the Commission can and will avail itself of a range of 
enforcement sanctions.  I am also concerned that the 
Commission did not take more steps to address other stations 
which likely aired the same programming.  

     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.
