File under "what were they thinking?"
Howard Stern suspended from Clear Channel stations
Reuters, 02.25.04, 6:56 PM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Shock jock Howard Stern's show was yanked Wednesday from Clear Channel Communications Inc. radio stations after an incident on his show Tuesday, the first casualty of its zero tolerance policy on indecency.

"It was vulgar, offensive and insulting, not just to women and African Americans but to anyone with a sense of common decency," Clear Channel Radio Chief Executive John Hogan said in a statement.

"We will not air Howard Stern on Clear Channel stations until we are assured that his show will conform to acceptable standards of responsible broadcasting," he said.

Clear Channel has about 1,200 stations in the United States though it was not immediately clear how many aired his show.

Stern's show is syndicated by a unit of Viacom Inc.

[emphasis added]
Really, tho. How did everyone in their programming department miss the fact that Howard Stern's show has ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY? Linked from Fark.

Clear Channel instituted this new policy after garnering a hefty FCC indecency fine last month for a 2001 broadcast by Tampa-based morning man Bubba the Love Sponge (whom they promptly fired).
