KPHX times two

Progressive talk fans in the Phoenix area now have another signal to hear their station.

Nova M Radio's KPHX (1480AM) is now simulcasting via a crosstown signal, KNUV (1190AM), owned by New Radio Venture, Inc. KNUV had until recently aired a Spanish talk format as "La Buena Onda." The simulcast began Thursday.

The move represents a signal boost of sorts, particularly in the central, northern and eastern parts of the metropolitan area. KNUV also has a construction permit filed to increase nighttime coverage.

In other KPHX news, host Jeff Farias has left Nova M Radio. His last show aired October 3. No replacement has yet been named.

Meanwhile, one state over, venerable liberal talker KTRC in Santa Fe, New Mexico has a sale price. The station is being sold to Hutton by American General Media for $500,000, according to filed FCC paperwork. The deal includes an LMA under which Hutton will take over operation of the station. And yes, KTRC will retain its liberal talk format.

KPHX is my favorite station. I just happen to be 40 miles West of New York City. WWRL's programming sucks and my cell phone has a stronger signal. Get KPHX up on a satellite and my life will be complete ;)

Jeff -

Obviously, you haven't seen the links in the middle column.

Any station that streams, you'll likely find all the links there.

Hope that's helpful.
