After their studio building and AM transmission facilities were destroyed by a microburst on July 23, 25/7 Media is surrendering the licenses of News/Talk 920 KLMR and Hot AC “93.5 The Heat” KLMR-FM Lamar CO.

In a statement to the FCC, the station’s engineer wrote, “Studios are a complete loss. Unable to restore service for both KLMR-AM (920) & KLMR-FM (93.5) 25-7 Media requesting to cancel both licenses, return spectrum, and release call letters.” The owners told Radio World in July, “Our insurance company believes the building could be a total loss. We should know about that within the next few days. What hasn’t helped is that we have had storms every night since.”
