Hold onto your boots, Colorado Springs
I was talking to local radio people today about the Winter Arbitron ratings. Naturally, the number one topic was what Citadel will do with KRDO (95.1 FM) after the sale is completed.
JoJo Turnbeaugh, morning guy and program director for Clear Channel's country station KCCY (96.9 FM) says he's preparing to get some company in the format.
"How much more could that writing be on the wall?" he said.
Over at Citadel, mum's the word, but operations manager Bobby Irwin offered some oblique praise for the boys across town.
“Country is a very hot format right now and KCCY has done a good job serving that audience," he said.
Meanwhile, KRDO actually had decent numbers with its Hot A/C format, coming in ninth, two places ahead of rival KVUU (99.9 FM). So, the betting line is heavily favoring country for now, but don't bet the farm on it. Or the pickup truck. Or the dog.
