KJOX/Yakima Flips To Classic Country


INGSTAD RADIO WASHINGTON, LLC Sports KJOX-A (ESPN RADIO 1390)/YAKIMA, WA has flipped to Classic Country as KTCR-A (THE TRACTOR), reports the YAKIMA HERALD-REPUBLIC.

OM DEWEY BOYNTON told the paper that ESPN gave 90 days’ notice of terminating the station’s affiliation contract in JANUARY, but the station did not wait until the 90-day mark to make the format flip, doing so YESTERDAY (3/28).

He said that ESPN “said they were going in a different direction. I can’t remember their exact words but they said they were canceling our contract and were working on another deal or had another arrangement.” He said that he expected ESPN is working on a deal with the crosstown TOWNSQUARE MEDIA cluster.
