CLEAR CHANNEL SAYS NATIONAL "BANNED PLAYLIST"
DOES NOT EXIST
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
San Antonio, TX, September 18, 2001...Clear Channel
Communications, Inc. (NYSE: CCU) today issued the following
statement as a result of numerous stories, emails and calls concerning
an alleged "list of banned songs" on its U.S. radio stations following
last week's tragedy in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania:
"Clear Channel Radio has not banned any songs from any of its radio
stations.
Clear Channel believes that radio is a local medium. It is up to every
radio station program director and general manager to understand
their market, listen to their listeners and guide their station's music
selections according to local sensitivities. Each program director and
general manager must take the pulse of his or her market to determine
if play lists should be altered, and if so, for how long.
`In the wake of this terrible tragedy, the nation's business community is
responding with a degree of hypersensitivity,' explained Mark P. Mays,
President and Chief Operating Officer of Clear Channel. `Even some
movie companies have altered some of their release schedules in light
of the mood in America today. Clear Channel strongly believes in the
First Amendment and freedom of speech. We value and support the
artist community. And we support our radio station programming staff
and management team in their responsibility to respond to their local
markets.'"
