Owner Charged with Anti-semitism Asks F.c.c. Permission to Transfer His Radio Station

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

G.A. Richards, radio station owner who was ordered to appear before the Federal Communications Commission on charges arising from anti-Semitic broadcasts, yesterday asked permission of the Commission to transfer control of his stations to trustees.

The trustees named include Harry J. Klinger, vice-president of General Motors; Lawrence P. Fisher, a director of General Motors; and, John A. Hanna, president of Michigan State College.

Richards had previously asked a stay of hearing because of his “health.” He later announced his retirement from the radio business, and a postponement was granted to enable him to transfer his holdings.
