Whereas 106.7's 100K watt signal is crystal clear, the signal at 107.9 isn't as listenable. I assume those of you closer to downtown and points north won't notice any difference, but I sure do in the southern part of town.
    Here I was told they worked on it to perfected! I guess that repeater that is ontop of a building, isn't doing that well after all? I was wondering how good that signal quality is in that part of Denver? Now I know.

    RGDenver, call KBPI and let them know this ASAP next week! They are assuming that they come in loud and clear!

    I'm in Western Westminster just north of Standley Lake and can't pick up 107.9 FM here, even with an amplified outside antenna. I used to be able to get KPAW 107.9 FM from Ft. Collins clearly before the Denver translator was put on the air. Now 107.9 here is just a bunch of noise.

    And after doing some digging, here's what 106.7 FM will become after Christmas...

    It appears iHeart took down the web site for the new 106.7 FM format - 106.7 The Bull - Colorado's New Country. I'm not sure if that happened because they are reconsidering doing the format or if the more likely reason - it just got too much attention once I posted it and then others reposted my info and they wanted it to be a secret for a little longer not to tip off KWOF or KYGO.

    I wonder what the higher-ups that run Country KWOF 92.5 FM are thinking, and if they will use iHeart's possible dive into the country format in Denver to change formats? They had registered altitude925.com over the summer.

    This is going to be interesting to see how this effects 98.5 and 92.5. All the country music, and they are using KYWY as their call letters. KYGO and KWOF, has something to be worrief about then. 10thousands watts of power.

    106.7 FM's web site is back up, but online streaming isn't yet. I'm told they are going to do commercial-free programming until February 1st. They will be changing their call letters to KWBL.

    I can't get KBPI at their new location at 107.9 FM. But just noticed it's available if you have an HD Radio on 95.7 FM HD-2. The audio processing on this HD feed sounds terrible though.

    Really? How is that even possible? 107.9 tower has always been heard in parts of Denver? Unless your talking about the weak transmitter? Something tells me that they didn't work out all the kincks before swapping.
    This is going to be truly interesting thing to watch? How well this new station effect both KYGO and KWOF? How did you find out what it well be Rob? Wondering? If they built a new studio for this in the same building?

    The 107.9 FM signal in Denver is a 100 watt translator located in downtown Denver. So the signal is weak in a lot of spots. And it causes interference with the 107.9 FM signal from Ft. Collins in places like here at my house in Westminster where I used to receive the old KPAW 107.9 FM signal great. It's probably true for the south of Denver too where KDZA's signal affects it, and vice-versa. They may try to get the Denver translator moved to Lookout Mt. which "could" help.

    KBPI's ratings weren't good in Denver and this was a way for them to keep it on the air on a lower quality signal in Denver, while using the KBPI brand in Ft. Collins and Colorado Springs to battle their competitors in those markets. I wonder if they will try to run different commercials in each KBPI market with the 3 signals, or just run more national advertisers since it makes no sense for a lot of local advertisers to advertise in a city they aren't in?

    I'm told KWBL will be local in all day parts after they run a syndicated morning show. They will have a new studio on February 1st. iHeart is gunning for KYGO in a big way and I bet starting the beginning of the year, you will see a lot of advertising and billboards for it.

    Default KBPI/Denver Flips To Country As 106.7 The Bull

    From All Access:

    iHEARTMEDIA Rock KBPI/DENVER flipped to Country as 106.7 THE BULL today (12/18), launching with 10,000 commercial-free songs in a row, and anchored by PREMIERE syndicated "THE BOBBY BONES SHOW" in mornings. The move brings a third Country outlet to the MILE HIGH CITY, as THE BULL joins BONNEVILLE KYGO, and KSE VENTURES KWOF (92.5 THE WOLF).

    SVP/Programming JOJO TURNBEAUGH, who'll also serve as PD for the new station, commented, “We’re proud to be home of COLORADO’s New Country. After launching with ‘two miles’ of continuous music – over 10,000 songs in-a-row – we’ll welcome 'The BONES Show' in the morning followed by local personalities, who will provide listeners with the best Country music and content you won’t hear anywhere else.”

    iHEARTMEDIA/DENVER President TIM HAGER added, “Today marks the dawn of a new day for DENVER’s country fans. No other company embraces the country lifestyle better than iHEARTMEDIA. Our unparalleled resources, unique on-air and digital content, and strong industry partnerships – are the foundation upon which 106.7 THE BULL is built. Add local programming, community involvement and the unmatched reach of iHEARTMEDIA DENVER, and it’s clear that 106.7 THE BULL will quickly become the destination for local Country listeners.”
