Update: In addition to KISW, the new “Metal Channel” is airing on HD subchannels of 92.3 KGON Portland, 94.9 WPTE Norfolk, 95.7 WKBU New Orleans, 98.9 KQRC Kansas City, and 99.5 KQMT Denver. The station will be rolled out to other markets shortly.
Entercom Rock 99.9 KISW Seattle is joining the small group of stations placing an added emphasis on their HD2 subchannel.
KISW-HD2 has dropped its previous “Live Rock” programming for “The Metal Channel“. Promoting itself as “All-Metal All The Time”, KISW-HD2 is running commercial-free with a playlist it describes as “from the early years of Black Sabbath and Judas Priest, through Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer to new music from Lamb of God and Slipknot.”
