From RADIO-INFO - WLIB NY DJ Bob Law files FCC petition against sale to 'white-controlled company'
A petition to deny the sale of New York’s urban WBLS/WLIB to YMF Media has been filed with the FCC. The grievance: transferring ownership to a “white-controlled company.” That's the phrase used by longtime WLIB (1190) personality Bob Law in an email inviting participants to join an "emergency national conference call" Friday morning (June 1). ... Law says on today's call, he'll "make it very clear how black radio and black media became so vulnerable." Read the full story at Radio-Info

(Please note the Philadelphia DJ mentioned in the article that hosted Dr. King would've been Georgie Woods- see page 2 of the article)
