1210 KASY is no more. Now, the Auburn radio station houses the Bustos Media AM outlet known as K-M-I-A.

From the sound of it, KMIA is running the same programming as KDDS FM 99.3, the syndicated GranD [Big “D” I think that is a play on the word GRANDE. But, I don’t speak the language.] With FCC autorization, KMIA switched transmitter facilities back to the towers on the property just off Highway 167. [Northwest Broadcasters]… and “Vintage” KASY audio. This from early days when KASY was at 1220 on the AM dial.
CBS Radio News is losing a slew of its most seasoned journalists after distributor Westwood One cut its fees, according to the New York Post. Senior correspondents and executives were offered buy-outs in advance of CBS Radio’s imminent spin-out of CBS Corporation, sources said. Among those departing are: Executive Producer Charlie Kaye, with CBS for 34 years; Washington correspondent Barry Bagnato, with the network for 30 years; afternoon anchor Harley Carnes, with CBS for 24 years; and, “CBS World News” anchor Bill Whitney, a 32-year veteran of CBS Radio News.
