It’s Official: ‘Mighty 1090’ Has Ceased Operations


Andres Bichara’s Interamericana de Radio S.A. de C.V is a Tijuana-based operation that is the licensee of a “border blaster” AM radio station that, until April 10 at approximately 11:45am Pacific, had been home to Sports Talk programming as “The Mighty 1090.”

Bichara yanked the English-language shows and spots, aimed at San Diego listeners, over what appears to be a lease payment dispute that’s not so straightforward as it appears.

While there was early talk that the programmer, Broadcast Company of the Americas, was immediately opening up discussions with another Mexico-based operator, it appears BCA’s efforts in America’s Finest City have reached their finality.
