KCKK 1600 moves to 1510 replacing KCUV
KCKK 1600-AM becomes a sports fan’s playland at the first of year but its “Classic Country” format survives. KCKK went all sports under new call letters KEPN on January 1 but its country oldies were already on KCUV 1510-AM, thanks to a rare bit of cooperation between managements.
KCUV was drifting along with an oldies-rock format but, said Tim Brown, CEO of NRC Broadcasting, when the country format became available, he jumped at it. A quick call to Bob Call, general manager for Lincoln Financial Media, KCKK’s owner, netted not only the format but the call letters.
The sports network ESPN is moving to KEPN 1600-AM (from first on the dial to last on the dial) after parting ways with KLZ 560-AM, which becomes a Sporting News Radio outlet Jan. 1. KCKK 1510-AM officially became airborne on 19th Of December.
