Audacy has announced it will flip CHR “97.1 Now” KNOU Los Angeles to News simulcasting 1070 KNX at 3pm today.
The move marks the second time this year that the company has revamped 97.1. The station dropped its “Amp Radio” KAMP branding in April to relaunch as “97.1 Now“. KNX joins its All-News sister stations in Chicago, Philadelphia and San Francisco simulcasting on full-powered FM signals. Only 950 WWJ Detroit and the duo of 880 WCBS and 1010 WINS New York remain AM only.
With the move to FM, KNX is removing the word “radio” from its brand in favor of “KNX News” to emphasize its multi-platform distribution.
KNX currently ranks tenth in the Los Angeles market with a 2.9 share. KNOU goes out tied for 28th place with a 1.4 share.
