At 12pm today Stephens Media flipped 100.9 KTSO Sapulpa/Tulsa OK to 1980s Hits as “Totally Awesome 80’s 100.9“.
The new format takes on Scripps Classic Hits “92.9 Bob-FM” KBEZ with a more focused decade playlist. The first song was USA For Africa’s “We Are The World”. The station is launching with 1980 songs in a row commercial free.
Original Report 8/26: Since Stephens Media moved the Christian AC format and KXOJ call letters last Tuesday to the former “94.1 The Breeze” KTSO Glenpool/Tulsa, 100.9 KTSO Sapulpa OK has been stunting with a loop redirecting KXOJ’s listeners to the new frequency.
That will apparently come to an end on Thursday, September 1. The former 941TheBreeze.com currently features a countdown clock titled “100.9” counting down to 12:00am on 9/1. In the August 17 Daily Domains we noted that KXOJ Program Director Bob Thornton had registered TheAnswerTulsa.com through his RadioServers.com web design company.
A flip to Talk would pit KTSO up against Cox Media’s market leading 740 KRMG/102.3 KRMG-FM and Scripps 1170 KFAQ. Usage of the “Answer” branding would likely indicate the use of much of Salem Media’s Conservative Talk talent as the company owns the trademark on the brand.
