Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Fort Collins, CO debuted AAA “Radio 94.9 FM, Colorado’s Finest Rock” on 5/17. It airs on K235BT (a whopping 6,827-ft @ 99 watts) and sister station 107.9 KPAW-HD2, featuring artists such as Mumford and Sons, Coldplay, Avett Brothers and U2. The station says it will also focus on Northern Colorado musicians.
Interestingly, Ft. Collins is already served by Clear Channel’s heritage AAA KBCO-FM Boulder-Denver—so yes, this station will garner its listeners from the local music scene.
“Radio 94.9 will be a perfect fit for the Fort Collins local music scene and lifestyle,” said Market Manager Stu Haskell. “We’re especially excited to spotlight local artists as part of our regular programming and offer the local community a unique radio station that has been missing from this area for a long time.”
The station will have a digital presence at Radio949colorado.com and on Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio.
Clear Channel Fort Collins owns and operates two AM and three FMs.
