Palm Springs AM Duo To Go Dark
Owned by Ric and Rozene Supple, the two stations are the final remnants of a one time five station cluster. 98.5 KDES, 100.5 KPSI-FM, and 107.3 K297BO were sold to Alpha Media in August 2015, while 1450 KPTR was donated to College of the Desert in March. The Desert Sun reports that the Supples will file Silent STAs for the stations while awaiting a suitable offer to sell. Both owners are in their 90’s and seeking to cut back on their businesses.
Both stations feature all-syndicated lineups. KPSI’s programming includes Glenn Beck, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, and Michael Savage. KWXY assumed the Liberal Talk format from KPTR when it was sold and features Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Leslie Marshall and Alan Colmes in its lineup.
