From today’s TRI newsletter from Radio-Info:
In Astoria, Oregon, a reversal of the typical AM station “music-to-sports” pattern, as Ohana Media Group declares “game over” at all-sports KKEE (1230). On Monday, it’s going classic country as “The Spirit of the West.” And after nearly 11 years, the station’s returning to its original call letters of KVAS. Ohana’s ops manager Kris Edwards says “we get calls all the time for songs we don’t play on The Eagle 103.9, like Johnny Cash, George Jones or Patsy Cline.” Ohana GM Jackson Dell Weaver has easy access to the KVAS calls since he’s using them on “Eagle 103.9”, licensed to Ilwaco, Washington. The classic country station will include Fox News Radio, local news and weather, University of Oregon Ducks football, and – when there’s an NBA season again – the Blazers.
