One day after 1640 KZLS announced it was flipping to Talk, Tyler Media News/Talk 1520 KOKC Oklahoma City has begun simulcasting its programming on 103.1 K276EX Oklahoma City.
The translator, which is owned by The Love Station, Inc, had been rebroadcasting their Christian CHR “The House FM” KJTH Ponca City. The translator has applied to its upgrade from 75 to 99 watts from a new location north of Oklahoma City.
