Tavis Smiley Converts LMA of KBLA To AM Buy


As the rock ‘n’ roll era began, it was a popular choice among teens tuning to L.A.-area AM radio stations. In 1962, it became a R&B pioneer, sticking with the KDAY call letters. In April 1991, new calls were put in place to reflect an all-Business News format for Los Angeles. Today, it is the home of a spoken word format focused on African Americans in the Southland.

That programming is thanks to an LMA put in place in November 2020, when its sale from Multicultural Radio Broadcasting was announced. Now, at long last, a sale agreement has been filed with the FCC for its approval.
