“On January 8th, KMED will be retiring AM 1440 as a broadcast frequency. This change comes in the wake of advanced and more efficient broadcast technologies. KMED will continue to broadcast at 106.7 FM in Medford and 99.3 FM in Grants Pass and on January 8th, 106.3 FM.   Although we are retiring AM 1440 KMED will remain on the air in southern Oregon, as it has since 1926. Thank you for your continued support and following of K.M.E.D. on 106.3 FM beginning Jan 8th.”

KMED is also running this announcement over the air. I wonder what they mean by “retiring”.  Is the AM going dark, or will some other station or format take its place?
