Garden State, WWOR Settle

A Federal Communications Commission law judge approved a $2 million payment from MCA’s Seacaucus, NJ.-based WWOR-TV to Garden State Broadcasting, thus ending a broadcast license renewal challenge.

In 1988, Garden State challenged renewal of the WWOR license on grounds that the station’s programming had not met the needs of the community. MCA attorneys in September proposed the cash settlement as a way of ending the battle, and the proposal was approved by FCC Judge Richard L. Sippel.
