Update 6/2/10: Gateway Creative Broadcasting announced today that they will move their programming to 99.1 on July 7 at 7:00am. KFUO’s classical programming will cease the previous evening.
Original Report 5/6/10: The FCC has approved the sale “Classic 99” KFUO St. Louis to Gateway Creative Broadcasting. The semi-controversial sale of the station from the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod will lead to the demise of the Classical music format in St. Louis as the station will flip to Contemporary Christian “Joy-FM” once the sale closes in a few weeks. Joy-FM currently broadcasts on St. Louis rimshot 97.7 KHZR Potosi, MO and 94.1 KPVR Bowling Green, MO, however those signals are likely to be put up for sale.
