Pinellas Park police bust pirate radio station

Pinellas Park police say they’ve taken an pirate radio station that was operating within the city off the air.

Late this afternoon, officers and Federal Communications Commission investigators arrested Kervenson Joseph, 27 of Kenneth City, who they say was listed as the CEO of pirate radio station WKMJ 102.1 FM.

Joseph was charged with unauthorized transmissions to, or interference with, a public or commercial radio station licensed by the FCC, which is a third-degree felony.

Officers seized the radio transmitter and antenna at 6251 Park Blvd Suite 9-F Pinellas Park. The business has been secured and the radio broadcast has been terminated.
