Across the decades, a Class B AM serving the northern portion of California’s San Joaquin Valley has offered various types of Spanish-language programming. In fact, from 1955-1963, it was a pioneering station featuring José Tapia hosting en español shows each Sunday, ahead of a 24/7 change in 1964.
In fall 2008, it was a Fútbol de Primera Radio affiliate. In more recent years, it served as a simulcast partner with its FM sibling, and earlier this year was a TUDN Radio affiliate, offering Spanish-language sports.
Now, Entravision Communications, which acquired the station in April 2000 as part of a massive $475 million acquisition of Amador Bustos’ Z-Spanish Radio, is parting ways with it.
It will mark the end of Spanish-language broadcasting for the AM.
