BUCKLEY COMMUNICATIONS Sports KIDD (ESPN 630)/MONTEREY BAY went off the air NEW YEAR'S EVE for financial reasons, according to a report to the MONTEREY HERALD. The all-sports station was branded ESPN CENTRAL COAST.
“We’re getting tons of calls. There are a lot of fans of the station,” said KIDD EVP KATHY BAKER, who has worked at the company for 34 years.
“This is a great little sports station,” BAKER said. “We raised a lot of money for the community through the HERM EDWARDS CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT.”
The station launched its all-sports format three years ago. The shuttering leaves KNBR SAN FRANCISCO as the only other sports station in the area.
KIDD broadcast games of the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS, GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS, SAN JOSE SHARKS and NFL PRIMETIME. Its syndicated sports commentators included MIKE & MIKE, JIM ROME and COLIN COWHERD. .
