96.5 Boise

Boise Formats Shuffle Following Asset Swap

With the asset swap made this week by Impact Radio Group and Radio Rancho, a pair of formats have moved to new frequencies. Sports “ESPN Boise” has moved from 730 KNFL/96.5 K243BM Boise to 99.1 K256CZ Boise/101.9 KQBL-HD2 Emmett. The swap places the format on a stronger FM signal as it moves from the 99 watt/805m K256CZ to 250w/805m. 730 KNFL is currently running a loop redirecting listeners to the new 99.1 frequency for the format. With 96.5 vacant, Alternative “92.7 The Alternative” K224EP Boise/KQBL-HD2 has moved to that translator as “96.5 The Alternative“. Impact is acquiring 99.1 K256CZ and $35,000 from Radio Rancho for 730 KNFL, 92.7 K224EP, and the Construction Permit for 106.7 K294DC (which will rebroadcast 730).
