INDIANAPOLIS Mayor GREGORY A. BALLARD, unhappy with the way he was being depicted on RADIO ONE Gospel WTLC-A, imposed a short-lived ban prohibiting city staff from providing information, appearing on the air or advertising with the INDIANAPOLIS radio station, reports THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR.
The ban against the city's oldest minority-owned radio station was announced to city department heads in a JANUARY 30th e-mail from Press Secretary MARCUS BARLOW. BARLOW said FRIDAY that the ban was rescinded after a meeting between city and radio station officials. "It was just a couple of days," BARLOW said. "We decided to step back until we sat down and had a meeting," at which their differences were resolved.
