KIGS Returns

Pereira Broadcasting has returned silent 620 KIGS Hanford, CA to the air as “Fox Sports 620“. The station, which rimshots the Fresno market, had gone silent in July 2012 following the death of owner Maria Pereira. The relaunch comes following the settlement of her estate with the station being transfered to son Albert Pereira. It had aired Portuguese programming from 1989 until going dark last year. The station is now running the Fox Sports Radio national lineup around the clock.
