Big FM B'lore back on air after apology to Kannada film body

BANGALORE: The tiff between The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) and RBNL's Big FM Bangalore has come to a halt as the former has accepted the station's apology and has withdrawn the one month closure of broadcast demand that it had made to the station following certain remarks made by a listener towards a specific fraternity in the film industry.

Big FM had stopped broadcasting from 1.00pm yesterday, but is now set to recommence broadcast at 1.00 pm after the impasse with the film body seems to have been resolved amicably.

KFCC, irked by the listener’s on-air comments, had on 27 July taken a procession to the station demanding that it stop transmission for a month. Also, to force the issue. last week the chamber had called for Kannada film industry-wide one day strike for today.

KFCC had refused to accept the apology that the station was willing to tender. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed and the KFCC has withdrawn its demand on condition that over the next fifteen days, the station broadcast on air an apology every half an hour or so and secondly, the station publishes an apology in the local Kannada newspapers such as Vijay Karnataka and Prajavani, among others. At least 100 ads have been demanded by the KFCC, say industry sources.
