Major Broadcasters Hit With $12M Payola Fine

GreenHell Re:Very cool... (222 comments)

Payola, also known as pay-for-play, means the record company paying a radio station X dollars to play a song a certain number of times over a certain number of days (and not mention that the spot is paid for).

And, as for the business of promoting bands: until recently, at least one of those broadcasters fined (Care to guess which one?) was also in the business of event/concert promoter.
