BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Billings lawmaker whose demand for equal time cost his challenger his job as a weatherman on a local radio station is now seeking equal time from a Miles City radio station where Democrat John Pulasky delivers the weather several times a day.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1w3yNOS ) Republican Rep. Clayton Fiscus is asking KATL for air time equal to that spent by Pulasky when he gives weather reports - just under 10 minutes per day.

KATL station manager Donald Richard says Billings isn’t part of the area in which the station provides city-grade service and he won’t grant Fiscus’ request.

Fiscus’ May complaint cost Pulasky his job with Northern Broadcasting, where he had worked for 24 years. Pulasky is now doing the weather for radio stations in Lewistown, Miles City, Plentywood and Wolf Point, but is making less money.
