Portland Rockers Shocked as KUFO 101.1 FM is No MoreBonnie King Salem-News.com
For over two decades, people have depended on KUFO for good, solid rock.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) - The rockin clock has stopped ticking for KUFO 101.1 FM in Portland Oregon. A standard for 21 years, the loyal northwest rockers will be on their way to another place on the dial to find their favorite morning show jocks, Kidd Chris and Porkchop who have been replaced with The Glenn Beck Program and The Lars Larson Show.
That's right, now listeners will have to adjust themselves for talk radio should they keep that button programmed to 101.1, as KXL took that spot mid-morning March 15th.
Alpha Broadcasting turned out the light for the rock ’n’ roll radio station and replaced it with Newsradio 750 KXL’s AM lineup, being simulcast as KXL-AM/FM, with local and national news, and traffic reports throughout the day.
The online notice from KUFO said,
"We just wanted to take a moment and thank you, our devoted listeners, for 21 rockin' years. You have listened and supported KUFO through 14 Rockfests, a variety of DJs, a couple of owners and countless events, large and small. We have appreciated your input over the years and continue to do so today."
KUFO had been on the air since December of 1989.
“Today begins a new chapter in Portland radio as we bring the news and information heard on KXL to the FM dial at 101.1,” said Bob Proffitt, Alpha Broadcasting’s president and chief operating officer.
“The future of news is on FM and we are excited to be the first to make the move.”
In addition to KXL-AM/FM, Alpha Broadcasting of Portland also owns KXTG-FM, KUPL-FM, KINK-FM and KXFD-AM.
Where does that leaves the rockers? ...Only KGON may know.
