NO.
A rumor has been circulating since 1975 that the late Madalyn Murray O'Hair, a widely known, self-proclaimed atheist, proposed that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) consider limiting or banning religious programming. Since that time, the FCC has received mail and telephone calls claiming that Ms. O'Hair started the petition and that the petition asked for an end to religious programs on radio and television. Such rumors are false. The FCC has responded to numerous inquiries about these rumors and advised the public of their falsehood.
NOTE:
There is NO federal law that gives the FCC the authority to prohibit radio and television stations from broadcasting religious programs.

Never heard of that! Silly stuff!!! Cant happen legally as laws are now anyhow. The religious right has a VERY powerful presence in Washington and i can guarantee you several of those TV/radio pastors have very very powerful connections and a great deal of political power in thier own right and lots of money. They wont be removed from their ministies without a helluva fight that would turn this nation upside down and inside out. Supporting a ban of religious broadcast from public airwaves would be a major career killer for most politicians.
