Riverside Communications have completed the reconstruction of 920 KLMR and 93.5 KLMR-FM Lamar CO.
The two stations were severely damaged by a microburst storm July 23, 2022 with the studio building and tower of 920 KLMR being completely destroyed. Former owners 25-7 Media surrendered the two licenses to the FCC in September stating, “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.” They then requested to have the licenses restored within the 30 day window to do so and would sell the licenses to Riverside in January for $30,000.
920 KLMR, which most recently featured a News/Talk format, has returned to its former Classic Country “The Country Giant” identity. The station will feature the “Anything Goes Morning Show” and retains Premiere Networks’ “Coast to Coast AM” with George Noory in overnights.
