Thanks for the complete update. KCYS is back on the air today with Country as stated, IDs are something like C96, Clatsop County Country station.January 11, 2021 at 4:52 pm #49368bossjockParticipant
rebranded “The Rock” and two years later is the No.1 Nielsen-rated radio station in the county
Show your work, Mr. Jacobs. Astoria-Seaside isn’t a Nielsen market, and the last Eastlan was spring 2018.January 20, 2021 at 6:17 am #49456
This morning (6:15am) KCUP over-the-air is carrying Christmas tunes while the web-stream is rock-music. Obviously some technical issues…February 10, 2021 at 8:18 pm #49691
If it’s February it must be Christmas somewhere…. KCUP is still stunting holiday music on 1230 AM . Their Internet stream is carrying the much-promised talk format. Someone needs to bounce a Barix box in Toledo.February 20, 2021 at 2:04 pm #49807

All the websites for Yaquina Bay Radio appear down for many days now. KBCH and KWDP seem to be carrying the same content too. I know KNPT’s talk show feeds took a hit for a few days but have now returned. What’s the latest with phantom KYTE? One can only imagine…February 21, 2021 at 10:42 am #49809BroadwayParticipant
KYTE still broadcasting from NewportFebruary 21, 2021 at 4:28 pm #49810ChicoParticipant
I wonder how Jacobs manages to make any money. The Stanfield and Condon signals feed Tri-Cities translators, and the Royal City one feeds translators in the Tri-Cities and Wenatchee, but still.February 21, 2021 at 4:44 pm #49811
Apparently a second party (Vincent Shiflet) based in Kennewick owns the non-fill-in translators for Jacobs’ KWDR in Royal City, a little Class A, importing the signals into the Tri-Cities and Wenatchee areas. Shiflet also relays Jacobs’ KWCO Condon into the Tri-Cities.(Shiflet’s third Tri-Cities translator is K237DP…perhaps carrying EMF)February 21, 2021 at 9:15 pm #49815
Correction: I meant to say “KWCQ” Condon. Per the last filing K237DP was carrying Jacob’s KLKY “U Rock” out of Stanfield (Hermiston).
I suspect Tri-Cities is a more profitable market than the Northwest Oregon Coast.February 21, 2021 at 10:50 pm #49818paulwalkerParticipant
Btw, Jacobs worked for me as a teen in the 90’s. I knew him to be a very gifted air talent, but also very smart as has been proven by his business acumen. Congrats, Jeff.February 23, 2021 at 5:49 pm #49828
KCUP seems to be in talk-format mode. I even heard an OAB-sponsored PSA. Hopefully the owner can find some advertising to keep the (tower) lights on.March 9, 2021 at 3:16 pm #49944
It’s good to hear AM 840 KSWB’s audio stream back up on the Internet. It’s at kswbradio.com .
That’s much more than can be said for the KCYS’s web presence at this point.March 9, 2021 at 7:10 pm #49945mwdxer1Participant
I think at least in Clatsop County people listen to FM or a stream. Streaming seems to be more popular than it used to beMarch 20, 2021 at 11:29 am #50020
I did find this semi-interesting 2016 video clip of Jeff Jacobs launching his KWDR station (102.3 Tri-Cities translator). The station has since switched formats to “Tri Country 102.3).
