Update 8/6: Programming of the station is now being handled by the Seattle based Ohana Media Group. Tom Oakes, the company’s Vice President of Programming and Operations Manager of their Anchorage cluster is overseeing programming of KMCQ.
Original Report 8/5: 104.5 KMCQ Seattle, which had generated a cult following for its broad 60s/70s Oldies format has shifted to 70s/80s Classic Hits and rebranded as “Q104.5“. The move places the station in more direct competition with Clear Channel’s 95.7 KJR-FM, which has straddled the line between Classic Hits and Classic Rock since the beginning of this year.
ClassicHitsQ1045.com was registered by station owner Queen Cities Broadcasting in June.
