Dial Global Digital 24/7 Networks and Mapleton Communications announced syndication of the legendary KPIG Radio (KPIG-FM), the award-winning Santa Cruz-Monterey, CA based station. Availability begins 12/31. DG will also handle ad sales. KPIG Radio is an "Americana" format that has long been known for its quirky sense of humor, unique music and live DJ mix. As the first radio station in the US to stream on the internet (www.kpig.com) in 1995, KPIG has created a loyal worldwide audience.
Programming will be formatted for national satellite distribution and local replay by affiliates. Local affiliates will adopt the station moniker KPIG/Pig Radio. Additionally, DG will have an arrangement to provide KPIG to stations for use on HD multicasts.
