Original Report 4/8: Air Capitol Media Group will begin operating its recently acquired “Fiesta 99.7” KANR Belle Plaine/Wichita, KS via Time Brokerage Agreement on Wednesday, May 1.
Air Capitol, made up of the husband and wife duo of Shane and Kianne Prill, announced the acquisition of the station from Daniel Smith for $2 Million in early March. The station currently features a Regional Mexican format.
The Wichita Eagle hints that Brett Harris, who departed Clear Channel AC “B98” 97.9 KRBB in July is likely to end up at the station. Harris spent 22 years in mornings at KRBB prior to his departure. Shane Prill, who is a financial advisor, at one time contributed business reports to Harris’ program.
Adding to the likeliness of the AC format coming to 99.7 are the following domain registrations made on April 1: 997Lite.com, 997LiteFM.com, Lite997FM.com, Wichitas997.com, Wichitas997FM.com, and Wichitas997LiteFM.com were all registered by Belinda Atteberry. According to her LinkedIn profile, Atteberry served as GM of KRBB from 1989 until 1995. The aforementioned domains are all redirecting to LiteWichita.com, which was registered by Air Capitol last September.
