No dates

  • A judge rules that nude images of Dr. Laura Schlessinger could continue to be posted on a website. Radio personality BIll Ballance had sold them to a company and claimed that they were the product of a 1970s affair between himself and Schlessinger, while Schlessinger was married. Schlessinger admitted the affair but claimed she was legally separated and had filed for divorce from her first husband at the time of their affair.

Debuts

  • January 10 — "Retro Country USA," a two-hour weekly program featuring country music hits of the past. The core group of songs comes from the 1980s, with 1970s and early 1990s songs also included. The show is hosted by radio personality Ken Cooper.
