The government of President Hugo Chavez revoked the licenses of 32 radio stations and two television stations over the weekend, as part of a plan to tighten control over local media. The plan has caused concern over the ability of the music industry to promote artists in that country. The move by the Venezuelan government has raised an outcry by broadcasters and protests by journalists in the country's capital, Caracas.

The list of outlets that have had their licenses revoked so far, listed by region and licensee, can be found on this Venezuelan government Web site.
