I don't suppose the "Seal of Good Practice" will come back.

This, of course, is the TV station once owned by none other than Jesse Helms!
C'mon iHeartRadio - do the RIGHT thing for once! Please cancel "Rover's Morning Glory" from WBFX in Grand Rapids.

Actually, Helms never owned the station. He was once their manager and often spewed racism during their editorials.

WRAL is owned by Capital Broadcasting Company, which has always been owned by the Fletcher and Goodmon families.
