KPTR is set to move to the right. Physically, anyway.
Starting tomorrow, KPTR and it's format will move from 1340AM to 1450AM. The new frequency is home to KGAM, a conservative talker that airs the likes of G. Gordon Liddy and Michael Savage. That station will be no more.
The reason for the change is the sale and move of one of R & R Radio Corporation's FM stations, the soon-to-be former oldies outlet KDES (104.7FM). With that sale, expected to close today, the frequency will move into the Riverside/San Bernadino market, and as a result, KDES and its oldies format will move to 98.5FM (currently KWXY). KWXY's easy listening format will move to 1340AM, prompting the move of KPTR to 1450AM.
Got all that?
KGAM currently carries Los Angeles Angels baseball, and that will remain on KPTR.
