JAMES EVANS Alternative KJEE/SANTA BARBARA, CA transmitter burned down in the MONTECITO fire last night (11/13) and went off-air around 11p. Several stations located at the GIBRALTER transmitter site have been affected by the quick moving blaze, that has burned more than 100 homes in the posh SANTA BARBARA area, including UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA affiliate KPAC, GOLD COAST AC KSBL (K-LITE), and CUMULUS Smooth Jazz KMGQ (MAGIC 106.3).
KJEE GM/PD EDDIE GUTTIEREZ told ALL ACCESS that he hoped to have KJEE back on-air by early this evening.
