Clear Channel Preparing Memphis Move-In
Clear Channel has been granted a Construction Permit to move CHR “101.9 Kiss-FM” KIYS Jonesboro, AR to Crawfordsville, AR with full coverage of the Memphis market. To make the move possible, KIYS will downgrade from a Class C with 100kw at 1030 feet to a C1 with 11.5kw at 489 feet. KIYS has been operated by Bobby Caldwell’s East Arkansas Broadcasters, Inc under and LMA since January 2007, when Caldwell purchased the remainder of Clear Channel’s Jonesboro cluster.
KIYS will join 6 other stations in Clear Channel’s Memphis cluster when the move is complete: News/Talk 600 WREC, Urban AC 1070 WDIA, Gospel “Hallelujah 95.7” WHAL, Urban “K97.1” WHRK-FM, Urban AC “V101.1” KJMS-FM, and Classic Rock “Rock 103” 102.7 WEGR.
