Mountain Community Translators has used the 250 mile AM translator waiver to bring 107.1 K296GQ Kimball CO into Denver as 104.7 K284CI. Operating with 140w/231m, the new signal brings 1340 KDCO to FM on the western side of the market.
Mile High Sports Radio (KDCO AM 1340) announced Thursday that it is now simulcasting on 104.7 FM in the Denver-area suburbs.
The move makes Mile High Sports Radio the only all-sports format in Denver broadcasting on both AM and FM. (Other AM stations are available only on HD2 signals.)
“We are very excited to again offer our fans multiple over-the-air broadcast options to listen to Denver’s largest sports talk lineup thanks to the addition of FM 104.7,” said general manager Casey Light. “Between AM 1340, FM 104.7, our live stream and iPhone and Android apps, there is now a full handful of ways our audience can hear unbiased, independent sports talk about their favorite Denver teams.”
Mile High Sports AM 1340 and FM 104.7 remains Denver’s only independently owned and operated local sports station. More than 25 locally based hosts comprise a lineup that airs more than 80 hours of live local programming each week. More than half the lineup are Denver or Colorado natives.
Mile High Sports Radio, which began broadcasting in 2007, will enter its 10th year on air in July, coinciding with the start of Denver Broncos training camp. The launch of the new FM signal coincides with the first day of the 2016 NFL Draft.
