WMT-FM Becomes Kiss Country, 95.7 Becomes WMT-FM

Kiss Country 96.5 95.7 KKSY WMT WMT-FM Cedar Rapids KHAK

Update 1/2: The second part of the shift is now complete. 95.7 KKSY has flipped to News/Talk “95.7 WMT-FM“. Northpine.com reports that it isn’t a direct simulcast as 95.7 will air Glenn Beck from 9am to 12pm, while 600 WMT airs its existing local programming in that timeslot.

Original Report 12/27: Clear Channel Hot AC “Mix 96.5” WMT-FM Cedar Rapids, IA has assumed the programming of sister “Kiss Country 95.7” KKSY.

The new “Kiss Country 96.5” is currently simulcasting on both frequencies until a new format debuts on 95.7 in early 2012. That will probably coincide with the signal upgrade just applied for which will move KKSY five miles closer to Cedar Rapids.

At that time we expect to see a simulcast of News/Talk 600 WMT on 95.7. Clear Channel registered 957WMTFM.com with 965KissCountry.com.

KCRG-TV reports that Kiss Country will add a local morning show in January.
