KFAR was shutdown in September, 2004 by the FCC because they were operating illegally. Not only were they operating illegally, they had never made an effort to operate within the guidelines of the law. According to concerned liberals across the region, however, this didn’t stop KFAR from providing an important voice that should not be silenced.
Sensing growing support to provide radio services that they were not legally qualified to provide, KFAR representatives have seen an opportunity to offer dozens of new services.

We are going to provide certain services to this group of the population, and they will pay less to get these services from us than they would from licensed or trained individuals.”
