NBC/Telemundo Pays $425M to Settle FCC Kids TV Investigation

NBC/Telemundo has agreed to pay $435 million to settle an FCC investigation into whether it fulfilled its children's TV

programming obligation--in several instances, it didn't. At the same time the FCC said it was was approving a couple dozen of the the company's pending TV station license renewal, including big market O&Os WNBC-TV New York, KNBC-TV Los Angeles, WMAQ-TV Chicago and WRC-TV Washington, and said that the kids TV violations could not be used to challenge NBC/Telemundo's qualifications to be a licensee when the other stations come up for renewal.

When was the last time the FCC actually yanked a license? I remember a million years ago they did it to KROQ, but that was because they weren't greedy enough. It wasn't serving the public, interest, convenience, and necessity to broadcast in a major market with no commercials at all. Apparently what really matters is serving commerce.
