AJ Machado Moving To KYXY San Diego

AJ Machado is sliding from CBS Radio CHR “Energy 103.7” KEGY San Diego to sister AC 96.5 KYXY starting Monday, August 7.

Surfing In San Diego, Phoenix Update

While we await the official launch of 101.5 Jamz in Phoenix, another one of CBS’ Free-FM stations seems headed for a spot at the Format Change Archive. Earlier today, SDRadio.net and AllAccess.com both showed us 1037KSURF.com with the logo plastered above. The domain is registered to a Judith Joseph of Cape Coral, FL but redirects to a subdirectory at cbsradioSD.com. The one thing that we’re questioning is the fact that those sites are NOT hosted by the company that runs all of CBS Radio’s web sites.

UPDATE 6/22 9:00am: The aforementioned site has now been pulled from the server. We’ll stand by our ...[Read More]
