A complaint against a West Jordan, Utah, radio station that broadcast a white supremacist talk show was dismissed, a spokesman for the Federal Communications Commission said. An investigation found no indication that KZZI’s “Aryan Nations Hour” created “an imminent danger of physical injury” that warranted court action, FCC spokesman Ralph Blumberg said. The complaint was filed by Rep. John D. Dingell (D-Mich.), chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and included allegations against the station by Neal Davis, a former KZZI talk show host, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. Hosted by avowed racist Dwight McCarthy amid public outcry, the show was canceled in early December after two broadcasts. Station owner John Hinton cited the loss of most of the station’s advertisers and death threats received by him and McCarthy.
