CC/Lancaster Oasis Disappears, KIIS 'Casted

It may be just coincidental, but perceptually there's a grim irony to the fact that right before FCC voted to allow certain media cross-ownership, a local station has been completely usurped. There seems to be a big format restructure and a sizable reduction in the work force at the CLEAR CHANNEL/LANCASTER/ANTELOPE VALLEY, CA cluster. Late last night, sources told ALL ACCESS that the local on-air staff of Modern AC KOSS (THE OASIS)/LANCASTER was let go, as the station is now simulcasting KIIS/LOS ANGELES. (This is not the first time this has happened; sister KVVS/LANCASTER is also re-broadcasting KIIS FM.) A check of the station's website found it now dubbed "105.5 KIIS FM."
Rumors abound that Country KTPI/LANCASTER will rebroadcast Modern AC KYSR (STAR 98.7)/LOS ANGELES) sometime after CHRISTMAS.
