KRBM at Blue Mountain CC in Pendleton was taken over by OPB in 1989 due to declining enrollment in the broadcasting program. Didn’t Mt. Hood also suspend their program recently and KMHD was taken over by OPB?
Anyone have an update on KJWY-LD returning to the air. Their new owner, Sagamorehill seems to run more mainstream, and not religious programming. Might be another alternative for some more diginets. Is KVDO going stick to home shopping?
Anyone have any updates on KGWZ-LD, KPXG-LD and KJWY-LD returning to the air? They could be prime candidates for carrying some of the diginets we are missing here.
Roy Dittman owner of KBZY passes away.
According to Radio Locator both KWIP and KZGD have Translators but KZGD is part of Bustos, So it could be KWIP or KSLM.
1220 KSLM has a FM translator. That is the only AM station I know of that has an FM Translator in the Willamette Valley.
at one point a year or more ago, I was also receiving a channel on 42.1. I think the call letters were KXPG. Since it was daystar, I really wans’t paying attention. Just curious what happened to that channel. It didn’t appear in the rescan.
Guess it would help if I did a rescan, KOIN has returned, along with KUNP. I have never received that channel before..
Is KGWZ still off?
Anyone have any updates on the KOIN upgrade. I still can’t receive them in West Salem. Thanks.
Hopefully KJWY will come back on the air as a new “retro type” network and not religious. Looking at the Sagamore Hill profile, they seem to own mainstream type stations.
I have noticed that Gator and Denise havn’t been on KYKN for the last couple of weeks, all of their podcasts have been removed and they are no longer showing as staff members on the KYKN website. Any one have any details? Could they land on the new KSLM?
Just got done binge watching the whole series. I highly recommend it. It was fun to see the anchors/reporters from the early to mid 80’s. It also showed a lot more information than what I remember being presented back then.
Glad to hear the KSLM call letters are back in Salem, but as a former announcer on KSLM, in my heart, they will always remain on 1390.
Here is an article on the new KSLM in the Salem business journal. http://www.salembusinessjournal.com/pdf/2018_04_sbj.pdf
The technical quality of KGW news has been going down for years. They used to produce a pretty good newscast, but I cannot get past the amount of technical screw ups they seem to have during the newscasts. I would expect something like this in a smaller market, for Portland…it should not happen. I can appreciate the need to control costs…but when it affects the quality of the newscast, then the amount of people who defect to other stations will over weigh the amount of savings. I find myself watching KOIN more because I can’t handle all the technical goofs that KGW seems to have.
And KJYW is off the air again in Salem. Maybe the owners of KWVT can pick this up and turn it into something good.
