An important clarification to last week's story on Emmis N-T/WIBC (1070am, Indianapolis) news anchor Leigh DeNoon. Ms. DeNoon pointed out to IRW that she was told by police that a pursuit ended at the Bigfoot gas station in Shelbyville. She called the gas station based on that information. As IRW found its information in published media, we erroneously unintentionally sensationalized Ms. DeNoon's involvement in the story. We apologize for that.


American Family Association wins an FCC decision for a Class A station on 91.1fm, in Valparaiso over applications from Calvary Satellite Network and Chicago's WBEZ (public radio.) Note that this isn't a done deal, as FCC Petitions for Reconsideration are still possible.


Chris Green exits Backyard Broadcasting's Hot AC/WLBC (104.1fm, Muncie) for PD and mornings at Crossroads Communications' Soft AC/WBOW-FM (102.7fm, Terre Haute).
