EMF currently operates 100.1 KLVJ Julian that programs its Christian AC “K-Love” network in northeastern parts of the San Diego market, but does not reach the city itself.
EMF also has agreed to swap 104.7 KKCS Calhan/Colorado Springs and $400,000 to United States CP for Country “Kickin 106.9” KIQN Pueblo.
