Changes in the San Luis Obispo County radio scene continue as plans are underway to move the local broadcast of K-LOVE, contemporary Christian music, to KSLY-FM 96.1 from its current station KLVH-FM 88.5 in about two months.
Nonprofit Educational Media Foundation, which governs K-LOVE, is acquiring KSLY-FM 96.1 from El Dorado Broadcasters. The company is divesting all four of its local stations.
The transfer is pending approval from the Federal Communications Commission; the transfer was recently filed and the process typically takes about two months, said Joe Miller, vice president/signal development at Educational Media Foundation.
He expects K-LOVE moving to KSLY-FM 96.1 around the end of September or early October. The transition is expected to be seamless; there should be no time when K-LOVE is not on the air locally.
The new station offers a slightly better signal, Miller said. There will be no programming changes.
K-LOVE has been broadcasting in the area from KLVH-FM 88.5 for nearly 10 years, Miller said. It’s undecided what will happen to KLVH-FM 88.5 after the transfer.
K-LOVE broadcasts to about 250 radio stations around the country; its headquarters is in Rocklin, near Sacramento.
