    They really didn't test this before they did all this switching! *shaking my head*. I knew this was a bad idea from the start!
    And now, they are trying to go after Goliath, that has been #1 in Denver's Market for well over a decade? They well try it with a syndicated morning show? Sheez, has Iheart lost it or something? This is a ridiculous idea! What do you expect? 100k watt verses a 100thousand watt out of the springs? They well always end up fighting and sounding crappy!
    Iheart is going to have a hard time competing with KYGO, that's for a sure fact!

    Competitors? Here in Northern Colorado? LOL! We got none! Sheez. We don't have a true rock station, they tried it with KPAW and went back to the classic rock format! What they need to do is shut down the repeater and just use both the KDZA's tower and the one up here!
    That might work?

    that would violate 74.1231-i, in that the booster would be be making it's own independent transmissions/program origination.
    really, that would just dilute their own marketshare at the expense of traffic and more automation systems to keep around.

    what i think is happening here is that the fcc has recently repealed the local studio rule. iheart is really just flipping kbpi while consolidating operations up and down the front range. look for your station to be a local sales office with a box hooked to a transmitter.

    The Denver signal isn't a booster, but a translator of a HD signal. So I think they could legally automate their "network" to run separate commercials in each market.

    It can be done? All they have to do is set it up with their computers at the 107.9 studio in the springs to run their own commercials, and then it re-joins up with KBPI again. This has been going on for years with other stations that carries another signal of another station. All they have to do is synchronize it with KBPI when they come back from their commercial break.

    well, it depends on how they license it. cochannel boosters must carry identical programming. translators get 30 seconds per hour. Given it's #18 rank and demo, but in multiple markets it'd make sense just to treat it as a regional network; it'd be a strong national machine and youd get all the time rather than splitting it network/affiliate since you're both.

    Yes, several automation systems have this sort of thing built in now. rcs calls it wancasting (what a name!), wideorbit had a thing called leader/follower.

    Humm.. This is an interesting thing Iheart is trying to do! I mean no other radio company in this country has ever tried anything close to do this! Couldn't the station in the springs be set up in away to when KBPI goes into a break that one in the springs can play their own commericals and have the computer know when KBPI goes back to playing music? Couldn't it be done like that?
    That station has to have some revenue in order to stay in business unless Iheart plans on closing that station up and just using the transmitter to cover the springs?

    I noticed something interesting on IheartRadio..

    They have tons of stations called "The Bull" all across this country, caring the same format and morning show host! I am just surprised about that actually?

    Hopefully at some not-so-distant point the Denver market gets a Country Legends/Classic Country FM format like 97.1 FM KTHT Houston, or 680 AM / 104.9 FM KKYX San Antonio.

    As compared to other classic country stations across the nation, these two focus exclusively on Country music from generally prior to 1990 -- no Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, or Kenny Chesney, the dominant chart artists of the post-Garth Brooks Era (George Strait was a consistent dominant 30 year chart artist from the early 80s until earlier this decade).

    Minneapolis-St Paul has 106.1 FM KLCI "Bob" with a format that is in the same general ballpark.

    This means plenty of music from the Big Great Eight of Country Music: George Strait, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Alabama, Hank Williams Jr, Glen Campbell, Waylon Jennings, and Johnny Cash, as well as other artists ranging from Hank Williams Sr, Marty Robbins, Ray Price, George Jones, Patsy Cline, and Loretta Lynn to Mel Tillis, Reba McIntire , Dan Seals, Steve Wariner, Keith Whitley, Clint Black, The Judds, and Ronnie Milsap.

    These three stations do well in their markets, drawing good listenership from demographics age 45 and older that have burned out on classic rock and have not bought into the contemporary pop-rap country sound that has emerged in the last few years.

    You know? When Jammin 92.5 was broughten out, and before it became KWOF, they did put a classic country station on there called "WILLIE" (before it was moved to HD2 then psssible got killed off ). We did have one before? I guess it didn;t do to well in Denver? That was the only time i can recall Denver ever having a classic country station on FM?
