It seems we’ve been reporting more about the FCC taking aim at illegal broadcasters under new Chairman Ajit Pai, especially the past few weeks. Thursday, another flurry of pirates were notified they had 10 days to end their operation and respond to the FCC to explain what they were doing operating radio stations without a government license. Here’s where the latest group comes from.
The first pirate was nailed in the Bronx. Sean Marshall was caught operating a radio station at 98.9 from his home on East 243rd street. Also in the Bronx, Maria Santiago was cited for operating an illegal radio station from her home on Saint Nicholas Avenue. Over in New Jersey Winston Tulloch was caught operating a radio station without a license from the home of Phillip Mahoney. Tulloch was identified as the owner of the station and Mahoney the owner of the property at East 30th street in Paterson. Both received letters from the Commission and have 10 days to respond.
