K-Santa Arrives In Columbia MO As 98.3 Comes Back To Life
Fifteen years after Michael Rice’s Contemporary Media lost his license for 98.3 KFMZ Columbia MO, the full-power allocation has finally returned to the market.
Iris Media’s 98.3 KDVC Columbia launched today with Christmas Music as “98.3 K-Santa” with a permanent format to come after the holidays. The KSanta.com domain is owned by Zimmer Radio and as we reported when Iris won the FCC auction for the station in 2015, owner Joseph Uzoaru is based in the same city as Zimmer. 983KDVC.com and 983KSanta.com were registered by employees of Zimmer as well.
Educational Media Foundation’s “K-Love” translator 98.3 K252FE Columbia has relocated to 106.5 with the sign-on of KDVC.
