Salt Lake City Frequency Shuffle Finally Taking Shape

The long gestating FCC Docket 05-243 that will see stations in four states relocate to new frequencies is starting to take place. Originally filed in July 2005 and approved by the FCC in January 2008, the docket will mainly see many stations in the Salt Lake City market upgrade and/or move to new frequencies. The first batch of moves have begun to be completed as SLC Divestiture Trust II’s 106.9 KEGH Brigham City has moved to 107.1 in Woodruff from Humpy Peak. The station is currently simulcasting Broadway Media’s “ESPN 700” KALL North Salt Lake City.
