Following the move of its Sports Talk “Mile High Sports” from 1510 AM to 94.1 FM last week, Hunt Broadcasting has launched the Variety Hits “93.7 The Rock” K229BS Loveland, CO/KCKK-AM 1510 simulcast in Littleton, CO. The FM is 99 watts @ 716 ft. HAAT.
NRC Broadcasting’s KCKK was recently purchased by Hunt Broadcasting. Janice Hunt, president, told The Denver Post the station will simulcast on the AM and FM signals as well as streaming on 937therock.com.
The format features “the greatest songs of the rock decades, from the 1960s through today.”
KCKK had aired the Denver Nuggets basketball team, Colorado Avalanche hockey team, Colorado Mammoth and Colorado Rapids.
Chuck Buell, a longtime radio fixture formerly of WLS and KIMN Radio and dating to the beginning of the “rock decades,” will be the afternoon driver.
Denver radio veterans “Jim & Woody” will handle morning drive. Denver native D.J. McCoy, who has worked for ABC Radio, will host mid-days.
In December, KCKK 1510 AM and its translator on 93.7 FM were sold to Hunt for a reported $1.6 million.
Mile High president James Merilatt told the paper he had been leasing 93.7 FM and 1510 AM under an LMA. The 94.1 FM outlet out of Golden, CO also will be operated under an LMA with Cedar Cove Broadcasting in Loveland.
