KKFR Moves Simulcast To 96.1

Posted: 07 Mar 2017 08:56 AM PST

From RadioInsight

After failing to accelerate the move of its east side simulcast of Rhythmic
CHR Power 98.3 KKFR Mayer/Phoenix AZ, Riviera Broadcasting completed the
construction of 96.1 K241BQ Fort McDowell AZ from Phoenix South Mountain
and has shut down 101.9 K270BZ Phoenix.

Due to the existence of Sewanee Phoenix 96.1 K241CS Phoenix rebroadcasting
Christian 1280 The Trumpet on the west side of Phoenix, the move to 96.1
creates some coverage holes from the station. 96.1 K241BQ operates with a
directional 120w vertical/426m as opposed to the 250w/426m that K270BZ was

Update 2/13: The FCC has quickly acted on the STA request made by Riviera
Broadcasting to accelerate its move of 96.1 K241BQ Fort McDowell AZ to
Phoenix South Mountain prior to the granting of its Construction Permit by
denying it.

The FCC states that K27OBZs problems do not justify STA for K241BQ. Nor
does the STA request supersede the need for a construction permit before
such changes can be made. Finally, we do not consider STA requests made for
the convenience of the applicant.

K241BQ cannot move to South Mountain until the application is granted.

Update 2/12: Riviera Broadcasting is seeking Special Temporary Authority to
expedite its relocation of 96.1 K241BQ Fort McDowell AZ to the South
Mountain Tower Farm just south of Phoenix. Riviera is in the process of
acquiring K241BQ from MKhanGroup for $230,000 to supplant 101.9 K270BZ
Phoenix as a simulcaster for Rhythmic CHR Power 98.3 KKFR Mayer via 103.9
KZON-HD3 Gilbert. K270BZ has received interference complaints from 101.9
KQSS Globe AZ and will go silent until Riviera can resolve those
complaints. K241BQ seeks to operate with 120w/426m pointed directionally
east towards Tempe and Mesa.

Original Report 1/20: After closing on its $175,000 purchase of 96.1 K241BQ
Fort McDowell AZ from John Lows, MKhanGroup LLC. turns around and
sells the translator to Riviera Broadcasting for $230,000. K241BQ already
holds a CP to relocate to Phoenix South Mountain tower farm with 120w
vertical/449m rebroadcasting an HD subchannel of Rivieras 103.9 KZON
Gilbert. The sale filing also mentions Riviera needs K241BQ to replace
101.9 K270BZ due to interference complaints filed by Gila 101.9 KQSS Miami
AZ. K270BZ simulcasts the programming of Rhythmic CHR Power 98.3 KKFR Mayer
via KZON-HD3 to cover the eastern side of the market.

WFNI Programming Adds New Translator

Posted: 06 Mar 2017 03:58 PM PST

From RadioInsight

Emmis Sports 1070 The Fan WFNI/93.5 W228CX Indianapolis will add a second
FM simulcast on 107.5 W298BB Indianapolis on March 30.

The addition of WFNI programming on 107.5 will replace the ESPN national
lineup and is caused by a power reduction of 93.5 W228CX to 2w/296m due to
interference the translator was causing to Woof Boom Radios Classic Rock
Max 93.5 WMXQ Hartford City/Muncie.

In the January 2016 Nielsen Audio ratings, WFNI/W228CX registered a 2.8
share of the audience, while W298BB fed via 93.1 WIBC-HD2 added an
additional 0.4 share. WFNI carries ESPN Radios Mike Mike in mornings and
NBC Sports Radio programming in nights and weekends. When the 107.5 ESPN
lineup is eliminated, ESPN programming will replace NBC in those dayparts.

Emmis Indianapolis is expanding its market-leading sports programming to
include 107.5 FM. Beginning March 30th, in addition to 93.5 FM and 1070
AM, THE FAN lineup and programming will also air on 107.5 FM.

THE FAN’s favorite local shows, including Mike Mike, Grady Big Joe, Dan
Dakich and The Ride with JMV, will also be heard on 107.5 FM. Select ESPN
programming currently heard on 107.5 FM will be integrated into the
increased coverage of THE FAN on 107.5 FM, 93.5 FM and 1070 AM.

Emmis will temporarily reduce power on 93.5 FM while working with the FCC
to eliminate potential interference issues. Adding THE FAN’s programming
to include 107.5 FM greatly increases THE FAN’s FM band coverage in and
around Indianapolis.
