On Friday, June 21, the format of “Classic Country 104.7” from KABQ-FM Bosque Farms to 98.1 K251AU Albuquerque. No word yet on what will replace it on 104.7.
Clear Channel acquired K251AU from Maria Candelaria in April for $170,000. It has just filed a license to cover for its signal upgrade to 165 watts rebroadcasting 107.9 KBQI-HD2. That’s still a steep drop from the 100kW signal of 104.7.
In the Winter 2012 Arbitron ratings KABQ-FM registered a 2.3 share of the Albuquerque market.
