On Monday, May 2, KNDY began simulcasting programming on translator K231AX, licensed to Marysville, KS.
Popular programs, including news blocks at 7 a.m., 12 p.m., and 5 p.m., the Partyline, and weekend specials including Sunday morning programs, and the Bill Miller Show are now airing live on AM 1570/FM 94.1. The stations will continue featuring a Classic Country format.
Coverage area extends to all of Marshall county, and while not as broad in coverage as the daytime signal for AM 1570, FM 94.1 will substantially increase nighttime coverage.
This will allow for additional local sports coverage, as well as providing a better nighttime signal for Kansas State University football and basketball games.
No immediate programming changes are planned, and KNDY FM 95.5 will continue normal operations.
“It’s quite a unique opportunity to basically add a new FM station to the Marysville market, which has been served by KNDY since 1956 and KNDY FM since 1974,” says station owner/operator Bruce Dierking. “It further extends our reach for listeners, and local advertisers. The new frequency should eliminate some of the weather related, environmental and reception concerns which AM radio is subject to.”
Dierking Communications is owner of the stations, along with KQNK/KQNK FM in Norton, and KDNS FM/KZDY FM at Glen Elder, Kansas. Additional programming and format information is available online at kndyradio.com.
