Cumulus Media has flipped Conservative Talk “98.3 The Torch” KWQW Boone/Des Moines to Classic Hip-Hop “98.3 The Vibe“.
KWQW let go of local morning host Robert Rees following his show this morning. The rest of the station’s line-up featured syndicated talkers Glenn Beck, Jonathan Brandmeier, Michael Savage, Mark Levin, Steve Deace, and John Batchelor. The station registered a 1.0 share in the Spring 2015 Nielsen Audio ratings.
The flip of KWQW continues a busy couple weeks in the Des Moines market where Saga Communications launched Sports “ESPN 1350” and Classic Country “93.7 The Outlaw” and moved Standards to FM “Legend 104.5“.
