Alternative Returns To San Luis Obispo

Dimes Media has brought some pieces of the former “New Rock 107.3” KURQ Grover/San Luis Obispo CA back to the market. 1340 KYNS San Luis Obispo/93.7 K229AK Baywood-Los Osos/106.1 KWWV-HD3 have flipped to Alternative “Alt 93.7“. Two on-air pieces of the former KURQ have joined KYNS. The syndicated Bob & Tom will air in mornings, while Hammer joins for afternoons. Just like at KURQ, Hammer will voicetrack for San Luis Obispo from his base at One Putt Broadcasting’s “New Rock 104.1” KFRR Fresno.

The station had been heard on both frequencies since K253BR signed-on earlier this year.
