No Nukes

KSHE-FM St. Louis, Mo. has been fined $25,000 by the Federal Communications Commission for airing a false report that the U.S. was under nuclear attack. Deejay John Ulett aired the broadcast on Jan. 29 after interrupting his drivetime program with a mock emergency broadcast system signal. Sound effects simulating explosions were also heard in the broadcast.

Ulett said he ran the report “to cause people to stop and think about what nuclear war would really mean.” He later apologized for the broadcast and was suspended without pay for a week.
