Following the filing of the station swap in Hot Springs AR between Central Arkansas Radio Group and US Stations, the first formattic show has fallen.
With CHR’s “Hot 96.7” KHTO and 105.9 KLAZ set to become sister stations under US Stations, KHTO blew up its format at 6pm Wednesday and began simulcasting Classic Rock “101.9 The Rocket” KLXQ. Now branding as “101.9 and 96.7 The Rocket“. it is possible the simulcast will be short-lived as KLXQ will be transitioning from US Stations ownership to CARG.
Note: An earlier version of this post incorrectly identified Central Arkansas Radio Group as part of Noalmark Broadcast. We apologize the error and any confusion caused.
