107.5 New Orleans

KXMG New Orleans Finds K-Love

Educational Media Foundation is acquiring 107.5 KXMG outright from Sunburst Media for $3.2 million. The flip earlier this week to EMF’s “K-Love” comes via a Network Affiliation Agreement attached to the sale. Original Report 3/17: Sunburst Media has pulled the plug on Spanish Tropical “Mega 107.5” KXMG Jean Lafitte/New Orleans. KXMG is now airing Educational Media Foundation’s Christian AC “K-Love” programming. K-Love is currently heard in the New Orleans market on a pair of rimshots: 91.1 WNKV Norco and 91.9 KMRL Buras. The addition of KXMG gives EMF a full market signal once its pending upgrade is complete and could allow the rimshots to bring the “Air 1” Christian CHR network to the New Orleans market. KXMG holds a Construction...[Read More]

FCC Report 4/20

In addition to your regularly occurring Translator Reports, which we will now be adding reports on other station relocation applications and permits. Queen Cities Broadcasting’s “La Mega 97.7” WOXY Mason, OH has lost the availability of its current tower location and has been granted a CP to relocate to a tower in Middletown, OH where it will operate with 2.7kW at 151.5 meters. From the new location the station will lose some coverage in the Cincinnati suburbs but gain additional coverage into Dayton.

It will downgrade from 7.3kW at 180m to 3kW at 144m but will improve its coverage in Columbus proper an...[Read More]

New Orleans To Get Mega

Update 7/1: The programming shift is complete. 107.5 KXMG has flipped to Spanish CHR “Mega 107.5“. KCIL’s Country programming remains on 96.7. Update 5/10: The transition of the Country format in Houma has begun. 96.7 has dropped its Variety Hits “Dan-FM” format and begun simulcasting 107.5’s Country format. Update 5/5: The move on 107.5 into New Orleans takes another step closer to fruition as Sunburst has shuffled the call letters at its stations. The KCIL calls move off of 107.5 and head over to the 96.7 signal that will soon assume the “C107.5” Country format. As 107.5 prepares to flip to Spanish as “Mega 107.5” it became KXMG on May 2. Thanks to Chip Kelley for the tip. Original Report 4/27: We’ve been watching the move...[Read More]

Sunburst Media Changes In Houma

Update 3/30: Giving more credence to the pending move of Country “C107.5” KCIL-FM to 96.7, Sunburst has added C967.com to its portfolio. Original Report 3/2: Sunburst Media has begun shuffling the formats at its Houma, LA cluster as one of its stations prepares for its move into the New Orleans market. Modern Rock “K-Rock 106.3” KXOR Thibodaux has shifted to Classic Rock “Rock Hits Radio LA106.3“. The format has much overlap with sister Variety Hits “96.7 Dan-FM” KMYO. That should be short-lived as 96.7 is likely to assume the Country format of “C107.5” KCIL when that frequency is shifted to Jean Lafitte, LA as a New Orleans targeted station. 967KCIL.com was registered in September. 107.5’s construction permit had expired in...[Read More]
