Colorado Public Radio Readies KCFR Move To FM
July 3, 2008 at 5:44 AM (PT)
COLORADO PUBLIC RADIO will make the long-awaited move of the format of its noncommercial Talk KCFR-A/DENVER to the 90.1 FM frequency presently occupied by its Classical KVOD on JULY 9th, and will move the KVOD format and calls to the 88.1 FM location of Contemporary Christian KFDN (K-LOVE), purchased from EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION by PUBLIC RADIO CAPITAL and operated by CPR under a long-term lease. KFDN has gone silent pending the changes. KCFR's old 1340 AM frequency is to be sold and will simulcast the Talk programming on a temporary basis.
"We are thrilled to reach this milestone in COLORADO PUBLIC RADIO's evolution," said CPR President MAX WYCISK. "KCFR's national, international, and expanded state news can now reach a wider audience on 90.1 FM, and KVOD will continue to serve metro-area classical music listeners with a clear FM signal on 88.1."
"We are so pleased to be part of COLORADO PUBLIC RADIO's efforts to now be able to provide both their classical and news/information services on FM," said MARC HAND, Managing Director for PUBLIC RADIO CAPITAL. "This is a great example of how PUBLIC RADIO CAPITAL works with stations to strengthen and expand services."
