KBPI Moves To 107.9 As Three Station Trimulcast In Denver, Fort Collins & Colorado Springs

A shuffle that started out with two stations in Cheyenne WY will now have its ramifications felt as far south as Pueblo CO. As we previously reported iHeartMedia Active Rock 106.7 KBPI has begun its move to 107.9. The station will be heard on not only 107.9 K300CP Denver and the soon-to-be former KPAW Fort Collins, but also replaced the similar Active Rock format of “Z107.9” KDZA-FM Pueblo/Colorado Springs. The move creates a KBPI trimulcast stretching nearly along the entire Interstate 25 corridor in the state of Colorado and into the Cheyenne WY market as well. The station will simulcast on 106.7 through the end of the year before a new format is launched. No changes to the KBPI lineup accompany the frequency change. iHeartMedia’s Denver Region today announced new programming...[Read More]

2015 Post Christmas Format Change Rundown & Watchlist

If there’s one thing we know to expect every November most of the same stations that flipped to Christmas music last year and the year before that and the year before that will do so again this year. That is the primary reason we are no longer producing the list of all stations playing Christmas music. It is very predictable what station will play Christmas music in each market and that they will then return to their regular playlist as soon as the calendar changes to December 26. But there are still the stations that use the holiday music to clear out their previous audience and build attention for a format change after the holidays. Those are the stations we will be tracking. Completed Changes 12/28: American General Media Rhythmic CHR “Power 106.7” KAGM let go of its a...[Read More]
