103.7 The Legend Brings Classic Country To Portland

Posted: 13 Mar 2017 10:05 AM PDT

From RadioInsight

iHeartMedia has flipped Country Tailgate 103.7 K279BO Portland/105.9
KFBW-HD3 Vancouver WA to Classic Country 103.7 The Legend.

K279BO had launched in October 2014 as a commercial-free competitor to
Alpha Medias 98.7 The Bull KUPL and Entercoms 99.5 The Wolf KWJJ to siphon
some ratings shares from the full-powered competitors. Tailgate never
generated any momentum as it registered a 0.3 share in its final PPM

The flip to Classic Country fills an untapped void in the Portland market.
The change follows the exit of K279BO and Sports Rip City Radio 620 KPOJ
Executive Producer Bobby Corser last week.
