Lazer Broadcasting’s Regional Mexican KXRS-FM Hemet, CA has scored approval 11/27 to move into the full Riverside-San Bernardino market. The FCC granted the CP back in 2009, but the station ran into the zoning problems. Opponents of the proposed project had appealed a Planning Commission approval to the Board of Supervisors. They’ve been fighting the project for five years.
Now, the Board of supervisors has approved a 43-foot tower on Pisgah Peak in Yucaipa, CA. KXRS will add a big chunk of the Imperial Valley: Ontario, Riverside, San Bernardino, Upland, West Covina, etc. The station will also move frequency from 105.7 to 105.5, to avoid interference with Emmis’ KPWR-FM 105.9 LA (Power 106). Hemet is located between San Bernardino and Palm Springs. Hemet will still be well-covered by the station.
The board of supervisors approved the new tower by a 4-0 vote, reports the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.
