A pair of stations in the Oklahoma City market may soon find themselves with new formats. Tyler Media CHR “Now 96.5” K243BJ Oklahoma City/107.7 KRXO-HD3 is now simulcasting on 92.9 K225BN Oklahoma City and starting to direct listeners to the new frequency.

The Last Bastion Station Trust has flipped Standards “105.3 The Martini” KINB Kingfisher/Oklahoma City to Sports “105.3 The Pro“. The station is currently running the CBS Sports Radio national feed around the clock. Oklahoma City is one of the few markets where the Cumulus owned Sports station did not pickup CBS Sports Radio when the network launched in January. Its “640 ESPN” KWPN and “98.1 The Sports Animal” WWLS-FM remained with ESPN Radio. The Last Bastion Trust currently holds six stations that at one point were required to be spun off by then Citadel Broadcasting to get under the ownership limit. Of the six stations remaining in the trust, there are applications to bring two of them back into the Cumulus fold.
