Original Report 7/8: iHeartMedia has begun stunting on the former All Denver Broncos “Orange & Blue 760” KDSP Thornton/Denver and 93.7 K229BS Lakewood CO as it prepares to launch Conservative Talk “Freedom 93.7“.
The station is currently running songs with either American and Freedom themes in their title such as Michael McDonald “Sweet Freedom”, Toby Keith “Courtesy Of The Red, White And Blue”, Miley Cyrus “Party In the USA”, and Tim McGraw “Two Lanes Of Freedom”. The change comes as KDSP changed call letters to KDFD in late June and iHeart closed on its $1.8 million acquisition of 93.7 K229BS from Hunt Broadcasting.
The Oldies format that had been heard on “93.7 The Rock” K229BS remains on Hunt Broadcasting’s 1510 KCKK Littleton/92.9 K225CZ Boulder CO.
