Jack Throws In The Towel In Denver

105.5 Jack JackFM KJAC Denver Fort Collins ESPN 102.3 KDSPThe first JackFM in the United States is no more.

Currently stunting as Classic Country “105.5 Bob-FM“, Front Range Sports Network will flip “105.5 Jack-FM” KJAC Timnath/Fort Collins CO to a simulcast of “ESPN 102.3” KDSP Greenwood Village/Denver.

The move brings the stations, which simulcasted from 2008 to 2010 as Jack-FM back together as KJAC covers the northern portions of the Denver market, while 102.3 serves Denver and the western suburbs. 105.5 was supposed to flip to the national ESPN feed in January of this year, but Front Range Sports instead merged the national programming with 102.3’s local programming.

KJAC became the first station in the United States to take the Jack branding in April of 2004. (Correction as Robert Corbin of VARTV.com notes below, 106.1 WPYA in the Norfolk VA market flipped to “Bob-FM” a month prior to KJAC)
