Cumulus Media has ended its LMA of Universal Media Access’ 92.3 KSJO San Jose CA. Universal Media Access has flipped the station to Indian music as “Bolly 92.3”.

Cumulus began operating the station in May 2014 as Country “Nash-FM 92.3“, attempting to fill the lack of a Country station in the San Francisco market.
