EXHIBIT 6

RADIO ONE LICENSES, LLC (ROLL), A WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF RADIO ONE, INC., IS THE LICENSEE OF STATION WTLC-FM, GREENWOOD, INDIANA. ROLL ACQUIRED STATION WTLC-FM ON JUNE 8, 2000. AT THE TIME ROLL ACQUIRED THE STATION, STATION WTLC-FM (THEN WBKS (FM)) HAD PENDING BEFORE THE COMMISSION AN APPLICATION TO MODIFY THE STATIONS FACILITIES. SEE BPH-19980904IE. THE COMMISSION GRANTED THE MODIFICATION APPLICATION ON OCTOBER 13, 2000, AND ISSUED A CONSTRUCTION PERMIT. ON FEBRUARY 26, 2001, ROLL FILED AN APPLICATION FOR LICENSE (THE LICENSE APPLICATION) TO COVER THE CONSTRUCTION PERMIT AND FOR PROGRAM TEST AUTHORITY. SEE BLH-20010226AAP. MARTIN HENSLEY FILED A LETTER DATED MAY 23, 2001, TO SERVE EITHER AS A PETITION TO DENY OR AS AN INFORMAL OBJECTION. AMONG THE ISSUES RAISED BY MR. HENSLEY, WAS AN ALLEGATION THAT ROLL HAD MISREPRESENTED INFORMATION IN THE LICENSE APPLICATION. ROLL FILED AN OPPOSITION TO INFORMAL OBJECTION ON JULY 13, 2001, IN WHICH IT VIGOROUSLY OPPOSED MR. HENSLEYS ALLEGATIONS. THE LICENSE APPLICATION REMAINS PENDING BEFORE THE COMMISSION.

THE WTLC-FM MATTER IS NOT AN IMPEDIMENT TO A GRANT OF THIS APPLICATION. ROLL DEMONSTRATED IN RESPONSE TO MR. HENSLEYS ALLEGATIONS THAT THE PUBLIC INTEREST WOULD BE SERVED BY A GRANT OF THE LICENSE APPLICATION. MOREOVER, THERE WOULD BE NO PUBLIC INTEREST JUSTIFICATION FOR FAILING TO TAKE PROMPT ACTION ON THE INSTANT PRO FORMA APPLICATION, WHICH INVOLVES NO CHANGE IN THE ULTIMATE OWNERSHIP AND CONTROL OF ROLL. LIKEWISE, GRANT OF THIS APPLICATION SHOULD HAVE NO IMPACT ON THE COMMISSIONS CONSIDERATION OF THE LICENSE APPLICATION.
