Beat Launches In Beaumont By Lance Venta on August 1, 2014 3 Comments The end of the 24/7 Comedy network brings a new format to Clear Channel’s 103.3 K277AG Beaumont, TX/KKMY-HD2 Orange. K227AG has flipped to Urban as “103.3 The Beat” positioned as “Beaumont’s Hip-Hop & R&B”. The new format positions K227AG to chip away at Cumulus’ market leading Urban “Magic 102.5” KTCX.

Shows how sad CC has stooped to…they have NO idea what they are doing with radio……should just turn the damn thing off Log in to reply Stelly August 2, 2014, 5:27 pm A minor correction, and it’s not meant to take away from your point but KTCX is 50kw, not 100.

(oh wait those are excuses from Blues Brothers!) LOL Still 103.3 barely gets 5 miles down the road (IF the tropo is not killing it) Should have stayed with the new comedy channel as originally announced… Log in to reply Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
