FMC Action Results In Changes At 98.3

Following the FMC filing of an FCC complaint against Connoisseur Media Long Island radio station K-98.3 (formerly KJOY), the station’s program director has been replaced. FMC’s action was in response to a hoax the radio station aired in February, which went viral and negatively portrayed Long Island in media throughout the country.

“The Fair Media Council, its board of directors and its members will not stand by and watch a local, over-the-air broadcaster unfairly marginalize any segment of this community, in particular, and compromise the image of Long Island, as a whole,” said FMC Executive Director, Jaci Clement. Prior to FMC involvement, the morning show hosts were suspended for one week. ”FMC will continue to closely monitor the station’s work, as well as that of all broadcasters and other media in our market,” said Clement.

The real story? Long Island has just gotten a new lease on life — and none too soon.

With a major broadcast outlet staking a claim here, Long Island doesn’t simply come out of the shadows castupon it by the city to the west. That, in and of itself, is a major boon to your life and your business. But what it also means — politically,economically and socially — is that Long Island is back on the radar screen, so people beyond our borders can hear what we have to say. That’s a luxury we haven’t been afforded since 2008, when our major local news sources became one, promised great things, then systematically diminished Long Island’s image and presence as it decreased news and firewalled content.
