Clear Channel News/Talk 1530 KFBK Sacramento will begin simulcasting on 92.5 FM on Thursday, December 1.
The move displaces Hot AC “My 92.5” KGBY. In the most recent monthlies for October, KFBK was fifth in the market with a 5.5 share. KGBY was 13th with a 3.0 in a heated battle for the AC audience that also included CBS Soft AC “Mix 96” KYMX, Adult CHR “Now 100.5” KZZO, Entercom Rhythmic AC “Buzz 106.5” KBZC, and Clear Channel sister Variety Hits “93.7 Jack-FM” KQJK.
The reason for the change as well as all other recent FM News/Talk simulcasts can be summed up in the final line of the press release:
KFBK will now reach the nearly 70% of the market that doesn’t tune into the AM band.
