New Phoenix Alternative rocker coming

0

KUKQSan Tan Educational Media has been granted a CP for an LPFM on 106.7 mHz in Mesa, AZ, suburban Phoenix. The station has applied for KUKQ-LP as its call letters. KUKQ already streams at http://www.kukqfm.com/, says RadioInsight.com.


“The new LPFM, to be branded as “Q106.7“, will feature an Alternative format, sharing some programming with 93.9 KWSS-LP Scottsdale, AZ including its TMI Morning Show. San Tan Educational Media President Shon White has served as a consultant and DJ for KWSS. San Tan anticipates having the new station on the air within a month. The station is promoting a “Grand Opening Event” for March 15,” the story said.

RBR-TVBR observation: The station has not been assigned a power level yet, but its height will be 109 feet HAAT. KWSS-LP (http://www.kwss.org/) is only 3 watts @ 581 ft. HAAT. The low wattage helps protect a co-channel FM in Flagstaff, AZ. KUKQ was really the only Alternative radio station in Phoenix until 100.3/106.3 The Edge came on the scene back in 1995.
