OfCom to investigate Jazz FM porn broadcast

Jazz FM

OfCom has launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Jazz FM’s inadvertent broadcast of the audio from a porn film last month.

As previously reported, during an edition of ‘Funky Sensation with Mike Vitti’ on 18 Feb, someone at the station managed to play about five minutes of porn over the top of the broadcast as it went out at 7.15pm.

Jazz FM described the incident as being due to an “unauthorised access to the live feed”, which was vague enough to make it sound like someone might have hacked into the station’s system and piped the sex noise in maliciously. Luckily, Vitti was also on hand to provide a statement, informing us that “there was unauthorised activity and behaviour in the studio”.

According to The Guardian, OfCom received three complaints about the broadcast. If it finds Jazz FM to have been in breach of the watchdog’s codes then the station may receive a fine. While we wait to find out what OfCom decides, let’s all listen to that dirty broadcast again.
