Indianapolis is being warned to be on the lookout for a new type of sting operation after one of its local radio stations allegedly sent a text message to one of the stations’ local TV stations, urging viewers to “stay away from the Indianapolis area” and to “stop buying tickets to Indianapolis movies and shows”.
Indianapolis-based TV station KCUR in western Indiana is not only the only one in the state to get this type of threat from its own TV station, but it’s also one of a number of TV stations in the city that have been caught up in the controversy surrounding the filming of a controversial Indianapolis movie.
In the text message sent by the station, KCUR was told by a listener to a local TV station that they would be “dumbstruck” if they had to go to Indianapolis to see “The Great Gatsby”.
The message is believed to have been sent by a subscriber to the station.
“Please call us ASAP.
We have to close our doors,” the text reads.
The message, which has since been deleted, came just days after another Kansas TV station was also warned to “stick with KCUR” after it sent a similar message to its own local TV affiliate.
In fact, a few hours before the KCUR threat was made public, another local TV broadcast station in Kansas was also caught up by the controversy after sending a similar warning to one its own.
The warning came after a Kansas TV affiliate in Lawrence, Kansas, sent out a text alert to all of its customers warning them that the Kansas City Star had obtained a copy of an email that the local station had received from a local Indianapolis TV station.
The Star’s website reported that the email from the station read: “We got a call from an anonymous caller, saying that someone has sent an email to our newsroom.
We are going to tell you that we have a copy.
The email is for your information only.
The phone number you received is no longer working.”
The text message was sent to a Kansas City, Kansas-based news outlet by a user named “Cory”.
Cory claimed he had a friend who works at KCUR, who said that he had received an email from KCUR warning of a fake TV station calling in.
He said he thought that was a “sting” and that they should “be careful”, as it was likely a fake station.
However, the threat was not a threat to KCUR’s business, but to its reputation.
“We don’t want to get into a business war over this,” said KCUR executive producer Mike Worsham.KCUR, which is owned by the Kansas television station KUOW in Wichita, Kansas and the Kansas TV network KTVI in Lawrence and Wichita, has been hit with an online petition demanding that it stop its TV broadcasts.
The petition has received more than 70,000 signatures, according to the petition site.
The station has since removed the threat, but has not yet removed the text from its website, which it has also taken down.
However this type, which was sent by an individual using an alias, has not been deleted.
“It’s a very subtle and subtle threat, and we’re not going to be surprised if this continues to be the case,” Worshar told the Wichita Eagle.
The local station, which broadcasts in Indianapolis and is owned and operated by the Indiana Public Broadcasting System, is a part of a group of local stations that is now being scrutinised by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the media regulator the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB).
“The FCC has been concerned that some local stations have been using their own content to threaten their customers,” said FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai.
“As a result, this threat was taken down.”
Ajit Pai, FCC chairmanThe FCC is also concerned that local broadcasters are not following the rules that prohibit the broadcasting of “unsubstantiated” information and the commission is working with the NAB to investigate.
“The National Association for Broadcasters has made clear that it is prepared to act in support of the FCC in investigating this matter, and is seeking information on what is known about the content of this threat,” the FCC said in a statement.
“We have also asked for any information that may be obtained that may assist in our investigation.”
Meanwhile, the Star has told other local TV outlets that they have been contacted by people claiming to be from KCVR (KCUR), but have not been able to verify the claims.
