FCC Asks RIAA to Look Into Payola Allegations After Reports of 'Problematic Conduct'

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has been asked to investigate "possible violations of federal laws and regulations that expressly prohibit payola."

The request was detailed in a letter from Federal Communications Commission (FCC) commissioner Mike O'Rielly, who addressed his concerns to RIAA CEO and chairman Mitch Glazier. O'Rielly cited "recent reports" from the radio industry as having raised concerns regarding possible payola.

Seems silly to risk legal trouble by giving out payola when the radio is no longer the primary means by which listeners discover new music.
