The FCC is Awesome

This story comes from the Honolulu Star Bulletin. Besides regulating wardrobe malfunctions, the FCC also licenses broadcast stations and distributes the four-letter call names for stations. For example, the CBS affiliate in Eugene is called KVAL, and the ABC affiliate is KEZI.

Now, the FCC has decided to give a yet-to-air station in Maui the surname KUNT. That’s right. That one word you aren’t supposed to use…ever. The FCC has now decided that it is no longer indecent, going so far as to name one of their stations the dirtiest of dirties. To make matters worse, the FCC has also named a station in Arizona KWTF. Like, “KWTF man? I can’t believe you named a station KUNT.”

I would also like to state that this the first time I have ever come close to writing the “C word” on any public form. The internet is awesome.
