HARTFORD, Conn. – A Hartford attorney filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission Wednesday alleging that WTIC-AM 1080 violated federal communications law while they employed former governor and convicted felon John G. Rowland as a talk show host in 2012.

Attorney Ken Krayeske said he filed an informal objection to WTIC’s broadcast license renewal on the grounds that Rowland’s involvement with Lisa Wilson-Foley’s 2012 campaign constituted “covert on-air electioneering” that the stationed tacitly condoned.

WTIC’s broadcast license is currently on enforcement hold, which means the FCC has declined to grant a renewal of the license while they are investigating a possible violation by the station. WTIC can continue to broadcast until the FCC takes action on their application.
