The Christian Preaching format of “The Word” KLGO Austin has found a new home.
KLGO had broadcast most recently on 1490 until the debut of “Fringe 105.3” on April 19 moved the Classic/Texas Country KOKE-FM programming to 1490. KLGO was set to be moved to 1260 KWNX Elgin where it would’ve replaced a simulcast of Sports/Classic Hits “104.9 The Horn” KTXX-FM Bee Cave.
That move never happened leading the programmers to begin a search for a new home for the format, which will take place on Monday, May 12. The KLGO format will debut on what is now Regional Mexican “La Z” 1120 KTXW Manor. The Bustos Media owned station signed-on in February and operates with 5.6kW daytime and 155 watts nighttime.
This is the second move for KLGO caused by KOKE-FM in as many years. The station relocated from 98.5 and 99.3 in June 2012 to 1490 to make room for the launch of KOKE.
