Ingstad Radio Washington has launched Alternative “106.9 XFM” K295BT Wapato/KHHK-HD3 Yakima, WA.
Launching with 10,000 songs in a row, the new station becomes a flanker for sister Classic Rock “105.7 The Hawk” KRSE against Townsquare Media’s Active Rock 94.5 KATS and CHR 107.3 KFFM. KRSE Program Director Brian Henderson will add the same duties for XFM.
The 106.9 signal signed-on earlier this summer simulcasting “ESPN Deportes 980” KTCR after that station dropped its Classic Country “Tractor” identity. K295BT is the second translator Ingstad has launched in Yakima this year following Hot AC “Big 106.1” K291BV in May.
