A Relevant Change Coming to ‘ESPN Tucson’


A Class A FM serving Arizona’s second-largest market from the base of Molino Canyon below Mt. Lemmon made headlines in late August, as Lotus Communications agreed to sell its ESPN Radio affiliate to the licensee that owns that FM — a simulcast partner of Lotus’ KFFN-AM 1490 and K285DL at 104.9 MHz.

At the time, the buyer’s post-closing plans for KWCX and K285DL were to continue operating the co-channel facilities as a “combined signal,” with Robinson already drafting paperwork that would see their transfer of control upon regulatory approval to a third-party non-secular religious broadcast ministry.

That spin has just been finalized.
