Clear Channel News/Talk 600 KOGO San Diego is no longer heard on FM as 95.7 KOGO-FM began stunting with commercial-free Christmas music at 7:00pm on Friday.
The simulcast, which began on November 7, 2011, ends amidst dropping ratings at the station despite the addition of the FM signal. In the September 2011 PPM monthlies, KOGO registered a 3.9 share. That was down to a 3.0 in October 2012. The previous “US 95.7” Country format on 95.7 had a 2.8 share when it was dropped. In the same time frame, Lincoln Financial Media’s Country 97.3 KSON has added many of 95.7’s former Country listeners to surpass Clear Channel CHR “Channel 93.3” KHTS-FM as the most listened to station in the market.
