Ukrainian Group Seeks Liu Losses For Continued ‘Sputnik’ Airings


It’s a Class B AM with a four-tower array along Addison Road in Prince George’s County, Md., that served as one of the National Capital Region’s first big Top 40 stations. Today, it is the home of “Sputnik,” the English-language Voice of Russia, thanks to a lease agreement between its owner and the programming supplier, a Florida-based registered foreign agent.

The station’s owner has been visibly silent as Congressional furor over the use of the AM, in addition to that of the NAB’s head. The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America has now stepped in, and wants Multicultural Radio Broadcasting to be stripped of its license for not only that station, but for all of Arthur Liu‘s radio properties.
