Mount Wilson Divests Two Monterey Signals To USC
Mount Wilson FM Broadcasters is transferring two of its Monterey CA area signals to Classical competitor University of Southern California.
USC operates a six station Classical network on the California Coast based at 91.5 KUSC Los Angeles and 89.9 KDFC/90.3 KOSC targeting the San Francisco and Santa Rosa markets. It will pay Mount Wilson $475,000 for Classic Hits “Q103.9” KBOQ Seaside/Monterey, while Mount Wilson will donate Classical “K-Mozart” 95.9 KMZT-FM Big Sur. Mount Wilson will retain the KBOQ and KMZT-FM call letters and associated intellectual property of both stations, which will both convert to non-commercial status.
Mount Wilson FM Broadcasters will retain its other two AMs, two FMs and two translators it owns in the Monterey market as well as its AM/FM combo in Los Angeles.
