Nuke Joke Not Funny

KSHE-FM deejay John Ulett, who aired a bogus report claiming the U.S. was under nuclear attack, has admitted making “a very bad mistake,” but his apology has not stopped the FCC from considering possible penalties against the station.

At worst, KSHE could face license revocation and fines of $25,000 for violating FCC rules.

During the prank, Ulett also had aired a fake emergency broadcast signal.
