  1. Don’t believe Entercom San Diego about keeping KBZT-94.9 “alternative”.

    KBZT will likely flip to all-sports.

    And with the Chargers leaving for L.A., and no NHL or NBA teams in that market, KBZT will have a local on pro play-by-play. Possibly a local major college’s football and men’s basketball games will be added to the schedule.


    • Provided that Entercom San Diego can pick up either of the city’s two big-time college programs. The Mighty 1090 has San Diego State football and men’s basketball. ESPN 1700 has University of San Diego men’s basketball.


    • Considering that the Padres deal was announced almost nine months ago, I really think that Entercom would’ve already flipped the station–or, at least, made announcements about an upcoming flip–if that had been the actual plan.
