iHeartMedia stuck first as Classic Country “92.5/93.3 K-BUC” KRPT Devine/K227BH San Antonio rebranded as “The Bull” this morning. No changes in content at the station, which runs the Premium Choice Classic Country feed around the clock. Original Report 10/28: Alpha Media and iHeartMedia are both seeking to stake a claim to the “Bull” brand in the San Antonio market. Earlier this month we reported on Alpha’s registration of TheBullSA.com with a mostly completed site for what is now “ESPN Deportes 103.1” KHHL Karnes City, which serves the rural area southeast of the city. Last week iHeart registered TheBullCountry.com which now redirects to the site of Classic Country “92.5/93.3 K-BUC” KRPT Devine/K227BH San Antonio. Both comp...[Read More]
The last vestiges of Classic Rock KZEP San Antonio has vanished from the analog dial as 93.3 K227BH returns to a simulcast of Classic Country “92.5 K-BUC” KRPT Devine via 104.5 KZEP-HD3. The Classic Rock format moved from the 100kW signal of 104.5 KZEP to the 250 watt translator last August to allow for the launch of Rhythmic Hot AC “Hot 104.5“. The format remains on 104.5-HD2 and KZEP.com. “K-BUC” had been heard on 93.3 prior to the move of the KZEP brand last August.
Clear Channel Classic Rock 104.5 KZEP San Antonio has moved its format to 93.3 K227BH San Antonio replacing the simulcast of Classic Country “92.5 K-Buc” KRPT Devine. With KZEP off of 104.5, Clear Channel has launched Rhythmic CHR “Hot 104.5“. Branded as “Today’s Rhythm and All the Best Throwbacks”, the station is launching with 10,000 songs in a row. The format consists of a mix of currents and Urban gold dating back to the 1990s. KZEP registered a 2.4 share in the just released July 2014 Nielsen Audio PPM ratings. The new format positions the station up against Univision’s “98.5 The Beat” KBBT, which is currently tied for the market lead. Clear Channel last attempted to attack KBBT on 105.7 K289BN until January of this year when the s...[Read More]
