104.9 WWLS-FM becomes K-Bull 104.9

WWLS-FM (WWLS The Sports Animal) becomes Country K-Bull 104.9 (now KQBL). The sports format continues at WWLS-AM 640 and KLGH-FM 105.3 (which began simulcasting The Sports Animal on April 1) It was pretty anti-climatic. A commercial was interrupted on 104.9 then the new Legal fired up. K-Bull has begin a war with Hot Country KTST (101.9 The Twister). Each station now claims to playing 31-in-a-row.

This signal, however, fills a hole in WWLS 640’s directional antenna pattern that WWLS-FM could not. Listeners in dow...

This station had been KTNT and at 97.7 since 1988. It moved to 97.9 to boost its power to 6,000 watts. One year before the flip, then-owner Caribou Broadcasting, relaunched it as KCYI “The City 97.9” making it a Urban AC/Jazz hybrid. Caribou was bought by Citadel Broadcasting (along with four other stations in Oklahoma City) in January of 2000. On Monday, January 24 at noon, the station began stunting with a computerized voice counting down. Along with the countdown were jokes and jabs at the competition. Examples: “Linda Cavanaugh is a fox.” (She is a longtime news anchor at KFOR-TV 4 in Oklahoma City) “Tell someone about this. In fact, someone tell Mike McCoy” (McCoy is the long time program director of CHR KJYO “KJ-103”) “Jeff Couch ...
