Morris Communications’ Desert Radio Group flipped Spanish Oldies “Recuerdo 1270” KFUT Thousand Palms/Palm Springs to Sports today as “Fox Sports 1270“.
The station will run the national Fox Sports Radio feed around the clock, with the exception of the syndicated “TMZ Sports” from 4-5pm. A call letter change to KFSQ is pending.
In the press release Program Director Mike Oakes commented, “Fox Sports Radio programming originates in SoCal, and we are thrilled to bring it to the Desert, serving Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley. And I’m especially excited to launch two rising shows in the sports talk universe, Jay Mohr Sports and TMZ Sports. These are the cutting edge of the sports talk genre.”
