Phoenix Area LPFM To Resurrect Heritage Brand
San Tan Educational Media has been granted a CP for an LPFM serving Mesa, AZ.
The station, which will serve the eastern portions of the Phoenix market including Chandler, Gilbert and Apache Junction, has applied for KUKQ-LP as its call letters. The KUKQ call letters were once used by 1060 AM during its time as an Alternative station in the early 1990’s.
The new LPFM, to be branded as “Q106.7“, will feature an Alternative format, sharing some programming with 93.9 KWSS-LP Scottsdale including its TMI Morning Show. San Tan Educational Media President Shon White has served as a consultant and DJ for KWSS.
San Tan anticipates having the new station on the air within a month. The station is promoting a “Grand Opening Event” for March 15.
