Mapletonâ€™s KPIG To Leave Its AM Home In San Francisco
August 10, 2010 at 12:17 PM (PT)
MAPLETON COMMUNICATIONS Triple A/Americana hybrid KPIG will be taken off its 1510 AM signal in SAN FRANCISCO as of MONDAY, AUGUST 16th. The 1510 signal is being LMA’d to JOHN DOUGLAS' PACIFIC MEDIA INTERNATIONAL, based in LOS ANGELES, who will be brokering CHINESE language programming. BAY AREA fans can still hear the station via its stream at kpig.com.
The rebroadcast lasted for three-and-a-half years, but according to MAPLETON Pres./CEO ADAM NATHANSON, it was a business decision as KPIG in SAN FRANCISCO was challenged on the AM dial and not profitable. MAPLETON, however, remains open to the idea of returning KPIG’s programming to the BAY AREA via an FM signal if any owners are interested.
The eclectic station remains successfully based in FREEDOM, CA, serving the MONTEREY-SANTA CRUZ market and continues to be rebroadcast at KPYG in SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA.
