Gov. Miller Sues WXIA Over Pol Ad Rates

Gov. Zell Miller and a number of Georgia politicians have sued WXIA-TV for allegedly over-charging candidates for political blurbs during last year’s election campaign.

The suit stems from a recent Federal Communications Commission investigation of pol ad rates, a study that discovered radio and tv stations commonly overcharge candidates. By law, politicians are to be afforded air time at the “lowest unit rate” by broadcasters.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary damages. WXIA, owned Gannett Co., is an NBC affiliate. Station general manager Harvey Mars was unavailable for comment.
