Madonna Special will not air on Channel-3

WRCB announced today that the NBC local affiliate will not broadcast “Madonna: The Confessions Tour Live” – a two-hour special set to air tomorrow November 22, 2006. The special was taped this summer at Wembley Stadium in London, UK during Madonna’s worldwide sold-out 25-city “Confessions Tour” and has received local and national controversy concerning content.
WRCB-TV Channel 3 President and General Manager, Tom Tolar viewed the preview of the special late this morning and announced the station’s reluctance to air the content at 8pm.
“I believe the majority of viewers in our area would find the content inappropriate for the 8-10pm time period,” said Tom Tolar, WRCB’s President and General Manager . “Although the NBC network has edited the Madonna concert to take out a mock crucifixion scene, there are many questionable scenes and content remaining.”
WRCB is owned by Sarkes Tarzian, Inc. In addition to WRCB, Sarkes Tarzian, Inc. owns and operates KTVN-TV in Reno, Nevada; WAJI-FM and WLDE-FM in Ft. Wayne, Indiana; and WGCL-AM and WTTS-FM in Bloomington, Indiana. Sarkes Tarzian, Inc. headquarters are located in Bloomington, Indiana.
