Clear Channel will flip the simulcast switch tomorrow (December 1), creating "FM News/Talk 92.5 and AM 1530 KFBK." The station is about to turn 90 years old on February 2, and in the 1980s it was the incubator for the Rush Limbaugh talk show. Its current lineup includes Limbaugh, Tom Sullivan, Kitty O'Neal, Amy Lewis, Ed Crane, John McGinness and Kelly Brothers.
The station losing out is modern AC "My 92.5" KGBY. Clear Channel market manager Jeff Holden says adding an FM signal "will give a younger audience access to one of the most influential stations in not only Sacramento, but all of Northern California."
KFBK is one of my default stations, but only if there is nothing else on the other four. Rush is good, if I can get it during work hours. Tom Sullivan is good too, but usually I am in the car before work and after work, when the progrmming is pretty sucky. Someone should tell that Kitty O’Niel that she is not sultry any more, and that everything she says is not necessarily funny. She has this horrible habit of saying everything with a slight chuckle while at the same time trying to sound seductive. I can’t stand listening to her.
I will not switch for a second-rate line-up.
The local Clear Channel station (WGST- Atlanta) did the same thing last week. I am lucky to get coverage if I leave their parking lot.
Hey CC, I think it is cute that you get an FM band just like all the other stations, but it does not mean a thing if you can’t reach your audience.
