Corpus Christi’s Rig Returns To FM
Update 5/20: Resolving whatever issues remained between the companies, Bogey Broadcasting resumed operating 106.5 KYRK Taft/Corpus Christi with the Texas Country “Rig” programming that was moved exclusively to 1150 KCCT earlier this month.
The Alternative format that had been heard on 106.5 until earlier this month remains on The Rig’s previous home of KBSO Corpus Christi as “94.7 The Shark“.
Update 5/4: Bogey Broadcasting owner Scott Holt has contacted us with a clarification.
While the LMA for 106.5 KYRK did come to an end at 2pm Saturday, the company is still under contract to purchase the station and intends to do so.
Original Report 5/3: Bogey Broadcasting has moved its two stations in Corpus Christi, TX.
Alternative “106.5 The Shark” KYRK Taft has shifted its format to 94.7 KBSO Corpus Christi. That in turn moves Texas Country “94.7 The Rig” exclusively to 1150 KCCT Corpus Christi, which had been simulcasting KBSO for the past couple months.
Scott Holt’s Bogey Broadcasting had been operating 106.5 KYRK via LMA from Withers Family Texas Holdings since the station moved into the Corpus Christi market in 2011. Last December, the company filed to acquire KYRK outright for $1,284,000. The sale was approved by the FCC, but has not yet closed. KYRK is currently silent.
