    93.7 The Rock And Orange & Blue 760 Denver Stunting Their Way To Freedom

    https://radioinsight.com/headlines/1...ay-to-freedom/


    93.7FM to become a talk outlet.

    iHeartMedia has begun stunting on the former All Denver Broncos “Orange & Blue 760” KDSP Thornton/Denver and 93.7 K229BS Lakewood CO as it prepares to launch Conservative Talk “Freedom 93.7“.

    The station is currently running songs with either American and Freedom themes in their title such as Michael McDonald “Sweet Freedom”, Toby Keith “Courtesy Of The Red, White And Blue”, Miley Cyrus “Party In the USA”, and Tim McGraw “Two Lanes Of Freedom”. The change comes as KDSP changed call letters to KDFD in late June and iHeart closed on its $1.8 million acquisition of 93.7 K229BS from Hunt Broadcasting.

    This will be the 5th Talk Radio station in the Denver Market. And once more, IHeart moves Rush Limbaugh off a legacy flame thrower and onto a second tier station. Will they be carving up KHOW's schedule as well for 97.3/760? If so, perhaps look for AM 630 to filp to say, Bloomberg Radio?

    Actually, in the daytime when Rush is on, 760 has as good a signal as KOA. It's a full 50,000 watts daytime. And with the translator, it will also be on FM for some of the market. In fact, it is such a good translator that they paid $1.8 million for it.

    I don't know of any place where this has led to a ratings improvement for Rush. I wonder if this is one more step towards retirement.

    So KCKK is completely gone? The Rock 1510? They had an interesting adult hits format.
    782 AM's in the log, 663 FMs (250 from Western WA), That's a DXer!

    They paid way too much for the signal and I hear couldnt keep sales people around and just couldnt bill enough. The AM is reportedly for sale and a price less then half what they paid for it.

    The Rock is still on 1510 along with another (much less impressive) 92.9 translator in Boulder.

    I’d be curious if the AM is for sale — if it also includes 92.9 or if that’ll be sold off separately.
    As we used to say down in ol' Mexico City...A.M.F.!

    Would be nice if iFart could find a better translator (or add a translator) to better serve the Metro Denver audience of KBPI.

    Update

    HeartMedia has officially launched Denver market Conservative Talk “Freedom 93.7” 760 KDFD Thornton/93.7 K229BS Lakewood CO after a week of stunting.

    The station will feature an all-syndicated lineup including Glenn Beck from 7-10am, Rush Limbaugh 10am-1pm, Sean Hannity 1-4pm, Buck Sexton 4-7pm, and Dave Ramsey from 7-10pm. Limbaugh will move to KDFD from sister News/Talk 850/94.1 KOA, while Hannity and Beck move from delayed airings on 630 KHOW. The shows will air on both stations until replaced with local programming to be announced at the end of August.
