BURLINGTON, CT claims that the ARCHDIOCESE OF HARTFORD's noncommercial Religion WJMJ/HARTFORD must move from the town's radio tower because of recent changes that elimiated ecumenical programming from the station's schedule.
The HARTFORD COURANT reports that the town claims the switch to all-Catholic programming violates the station's 1987 agreement for the use of the tower on JOHNNYCAKE MOUNTAIN and a cease-and-desist order to the station has been approved by the town planning and zoning commission. WJMJ recently dropped the multi-faith "FESTIVAL OF FAITH" SUNDAY programming in favor of shows from the EWTN GLOBAL CATHOLIC NETWORK.
