    I have noticed that KNRQ still has a CP for Tualatin,3.7kW. I noticed also that there is one for Aloha also for KNRQ. When this does happen what will happen with NRQ in Eugene ? My opinion….blow up 102.3 and put NRQ there. Remove sports from 95.3 and put a classic leaning country.

    Just my opinion.

    Since it involves a rule making procedure, my guess is that the construction permit will be built out before the application is granted, what with time running out on the CP. When you say, “classic leaning”, do you mean “Garth Brooks” or “Ernest Tubbs”? If it’s the latter, it’s a recipe for failure.

    Exradiodude was thinking Garth Brooks, and the kind of format 95.3 had as “The Moose” from 2004 to 2009. They played contemporary Country, along with a few older songs from Patsy Cline, Bellamy Brothers, Rosanne Cash, Hank Williams, Jr., etc.

    This from All Access:

    OREGON PUBLIC BROADCASTING is swapping the construction permit for KQDL/HINES, OR to CALVARY CHAPEL OF TWIN FALLS, INC. and $3,000 for FM translator K252DL/WALTON, OR.

    Walton is west of Eugene.

    K252DL currently has a CP to move from 98.3 to 95.7 at the same Walton location, raising power from 8 to 10 watts. I expect OPB to move to Eugene.

    Were they just granted the CP?

    I believe the proper technical term is “oops.” It’s still an application. Shoulda’ read it closer.

    Off the subject….but I rind that Eugene radio stations are boring these days compare to 10 years ago. Back then, they had a personality driven from Classic Rock to Top-40. Right now, its just voice track and their music selections are very repetitive or boring. What do you think?

    Only 3 radio groups are representative in the Eugene Market.

    McKienzie Broadcasting.

    -KMGE, KKNU, and KEUG

    Bi-Costal Media

    -KPNW, KDUK, KODZ, and KFLY

    Cumulus Media

    -KUGN, KSCR, KUJZ, KNRQ, KEHK, and KZEL.

    You must remember…just because you have the most doesnt mean you make the most. I think billing wise MRB has them beat.

    Also Don’t forget; Willamette Media owns KKNX 840 & I think KLZS 1450

    e_dawg…thanks for that post. I was with KDUK/KODZ ten years ago. It is nice that someone remembers that we did (or atleast tried) to do radio right back then. Certainly, the ratings proved it, but I lament the fact that this effort seems to be forgotten and/or not important today. Eugene is still a vibrant market with potentially high revenue. I’ll leave it there.

    I think true fun and exciting radio goes back to the late 60’s and 70’s with the boss jock format and all the fantastic original promotions.

    It was the wild west of radio programing. Just watch WKRP re-runs.

    Turkey drops from the sky, money drops from skyscrapers, wet bikini contests, treasure hunts,….it’s all gone now.

    Each decade has become more liability conscious, cheap, watered down, and boring.

    “be the 10th caller to qualify to win….”

    In the olden days if you were the 10th caller…you win.
