“KIST — the entire format — is going to KBKO-AM 1490,” KIST station manager Marlene Huddy says. “They may change the call letters. Right now they are simulcasting, so the programs on 1340 are also playing on 1490, until the change is final.”
Huddy estimates the full switchover to be finished in October.
KCLU, a community service of California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, will be the only NPR station on AM radio in Southern California.
