Former 98.5 KYGO Denver Program Director Eddie Haskell is moving up I-25 to serve as SVP/Programming for iHeartMedia in the adjacent Fort Collins market. Haskell served as PD of KYGO from January 2013 through August 2016 during the time upon which former KYGO morning host David Mueller was found to have groped Taylor Swift. Haskell stated on the witness stand that Mueller’s unfounded claim that he too had touched Swift that night had cost him some jobs following his exit from KYGO. Haskell previously spent nine years as OM of Citadel’s Albuquerque cluster where he programmed Country 92.3 KRST as well as programmed WYCD Detroit, KKAT-FM Salt Lake City, WXLK Roanoke, and KDJM Denver.

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]
iHeartMedia has launched Oldies “Real Oldies 97.1” K246CI/100.7 KOLZ-HD2 Cheyenne WY. The new Premium Choice format gives iHeart a direct format competitor to Northeast Broadcasting’s 104.9 KRRR Cheyenne. K246CI operates with 250 watts at 3 meters covering Cheyenne proper (Coverage Map).
Translator Moves Following interference complaints from Saga’s 102.1 WAQY Springfield, MA, iHeartMedia’s Classic Rock “Rock 102” W271BW Milbrook/New Haven, CT applies to relocate to 101.5 with 5 watts at -27 meters (Coverage Map). 101.5 is first adjacent to sister CHR “KC 101.3” WKCI-FM Hamden, which means its just a first step before a second frequency change. Michael Piazza’s 99.3 K257CD Phoenix seeks to increase its coverage with an upgrade to 250 watts horizontal at 261 meters from its existing location. K257CD will continue to rebroadcast CRC Broadcasting’s “Money Radio 1510” KFNN Mesa (Coverage Map). Yet another translator is attempting to make a move into Indianapolis as Kaspar Broadcasting’s 94.3 W232CP Noblesville s...[Read More]
