On the heels of launching Rock “Thunder 99.7” K259CZ/96.5 KRGI-HD2 Grand Island NE last week, Legacy Communications has launched another translator in the market. 103.5 K278BR Grand Island has launched as Classic Country “103.5 The Legend” rebroadcasting 96.5 KRGI-HD4 as a flanker to “Country 96“.
Legacy Communications has relaunched the Active Rock “Thunder” brand in Grand Island NE. The new “Thunder 99.7” K259CZ/96.5 KRGI-HD2 Grand Island restores the format to the analog FM dial in the market for the first time since “Thunder 103.1” KKJK Ravenna flipped to CHR “2Day-FM” in June 2012. The format was then resurrected on KRGI-HD2 in 2016. Cluster Operations Manager Adam ‘Shed’ Jurgens will host afternoons on K259CZ.
Radio-One is seeking a waiver or flexibility over two Washington DC translator applications after getting their filings mixed up.
After dropping its Active Rock “Thunder 103.1” format on Monday, Legacy Communications has debuted CHR “2DayFM” on 103.1 KKJK Ravenna, NE. The station serves the Tri-Cities of Central Nebraska of Grand Island, Hastings, and Kearney. Legacy also operates News/Talk 1430 KRGI, “Country 96.5” KRGI-FM , and Classic Rock “97.3 The Wolf” KRGY in the market under the name Hometown Family Radio.
