D/FW Radio: KKDA, KRNB Ban R Kelly Music
Lifetime’s explosive documentary Surviving R. Kelly has inspired two Dallas radio stations to ban R. Kelly’s music. KKDA 104.5 FM K104 and KRNB 105.7 FM, both owned by Service Broadcasting Corporation, Spin reports the decision was announced on Monday.
Kelly was previously accused in Dallas of infecting a woman with a sexually transmitted disease and grooming the woman to join his alleged “sex cult.”
Lifetime’s six-part documentary has inspired new calls for media companies to boycott the singer’s work. Activists held a press conference Monday in Los Angeles urging iHeartRadio and Radio One, two of the nation’s largest radio conglomerates, to ban Kelly’s songs.
Neither company has responded to Spin’s repeated requests for comment.
