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