Albuquerque AMs Swap Places

Rock Of Talk 1550 The Truth KIVA Cool Real Oldies Kool 107.5 1600 KRKE AlbuquerqueVanguard Media has swapped the formats and call letters of its two ALbuquerque AM’s.

Talk “The Rock Of Talk” 1550 KIVA shifts to 1600, while Classic Hits “Cool 107.5” KRKE goes in reverse.

The move places the Talk format on the 1600 signal that operates with 10kW daytime and 175 watts at night from just south of the city. 1550 operates with 10kW daytime and just 27 watts at night, but will now be paired with the 107.5 translator (K298BK Sandia) that covers the whole city and adjacent towns.

The 107.5 translator currently has a Construction Permit to upgrade from 99 watts to 250 watts with a move to 94.5. KIVA will soon be paired with 98.9 K255AU Corrales which will operate with 99 watts from the same location as 107.5.
