KBAI Flips

August 1, 2017

Hi Jason

Bellingham’s KBAI 930, once owned by Steven Smith, has today flipped from canned liberal talk to classic hits – “K-Bay 98.9 & 930 AM” – a format & imaging used previous to the talk format. It’s a welcome addition to the regional radio dial here & a real shame it doesn’t have the power to easily penetrate metro Vancouver. In that city, long-time oldies/classic hits C-ISL 650 is about to drop the format for canned sports. The new K-BAY should pick up some new listener’s in B.C.’s Fraser Valley as a result
