KQBL and its “Bull” Country format will make its move from 100.7 to 101.9 at midnight tonight. After a few days of simulcasting on both frequencies, 100.7 will return to the KPDA call letters and Regional Mexican “La Poderosa” that was used from 2008 until the launch of the Bull in 2014 under new owners JLD Media. The previous occupant of the 101.9 frequency, Regional Mexican “La Gran D” KDBI moved to 106.3 last month. Original Report 1/6: Just before Christmas, Impact Radio Group announced the sale of 100.7 KQBL Mountain Home/Boise to JLD Media for $200,000. Now a second part of the deal has dropped. With JLD Media closing on its acquisition of Regional Mexican “101.9 La Gran D” KDBI Emmett and Spanish CHR “Latino 106.3” KQTA Homedale from Adelante Medi...[Read More]
Another station is on the move in Boise. As Country “100.7 The Bull” KQBL prepares to relocate to 101.9 in Mid-February, JLD Media has cleared an opening by moving Regional Mexican “101.9 La Gran D” KDBI Emmett to 106.3 Homedale. That move eliminates Spanish AC “Latino 106.3” KQTA. With the KDBI call letters moved to the 106.3 allocation, 101.9 has temporarily claimed the KPDA call letters that belonged to 100.7 during a previous format. That Regional Mexican “La Poderosa” brand appears to be on its way back to Boise and 100.7 as JLD Media registered LaPoderosaIdaho.com concurrently with LaGranD1063.com.
Kevin Terry’s JLD Media is adding a third FM in the Boise market with the purchase of Country “100.7 The Bull” KQBL Mountain Home from Impact Radio Group.

Included in the sale contract is an agreement to move the KQBL call letters to another Impact station in the market as the Country format will stay with the company. Following the sale Impact will retain Variety Hits “96.1 Bob-FM” KSRV-FM Ontario, Rhythmic CHR “Wild 101.1” KWYD Parma, Hot AC “My 102.7” KZMG Melba, Sports “ESPN Boise” 730 KNFL/96.5 K260AI Boise, and “Oldi...[Read More]
Impact Radio Group has flipped Regional Mexican “100.7 La Poderosa” KPDA-FM Mountain Home/Boise to Country “100.7 The Bull” KQBL. The move comes following Impact’s divestiture of 99.1 KINF Gooding to Lee Family Broadcasting, who flipped that station to Regional Mexican last month and closed today allowing Impact to begin operating its recently acquired “My 102.7” KPLD. KQBL becomes the fourth Country outlet in the Boise market joining Cumulus’ “Kissin 92.3” KIZN and “Nash-FM 97.9” KQFC and Townquare Media’s “Wow Country 104.3” KAWO. The Bull will be a little broader than its competitors featuring Country artists from the 80s through now including Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, George Strait,...[Read More]
With the FCC back in business we are able to resume our irregular roundup of applications from around the industry. CBS has applied to change the city of license of its “El Zol 107.9” WLZL Annapolis, MD to College Park. No facility change is connected to the application, but there could be additional ramifications. Despite the station operating in the CBS Washington cluster, Annapolis is located in the Baltimore market and WLZL currently counts towards CBS’ ownership limit in Baltimore. When CBS acquired the 107.9 facility in 2011 it had to relicense its 99.1 from Annapolis to Bowie in the Washington market to fit 107.9 in its market cap. Could this move be a predecessor to CBS adding an additional FM in Baltimore? FM Idaho has requested a facility swap of its 99.1 KINF-F...[Read More]
