Las Vegas, Nevada (6/21/18): Beasley Media Group, Inc., a subsidiary of Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: BBGI) announces the debut of The New 101.5FM/720AM The Talk of Las Vegas. The change will officially take place on June 21, 2018.
101.5 KDWN-FM’s simulcast of KDWN-AM will originate on Beasley’s translator at 101.5FM, located high atop the Stratosphere in Las Vegas. The decision to create a simulcast broadcast stems from the company’s market research and a desire to offer Las Vegas residents an alternate way to hear KDWN’s locally originated programming, along with a venerable line-up of personalities that will include Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin.
In addition, as the official broadcast partner of the Oakland Raiders, fans of the team will have yet another FM option to hear the games this fall. The live broadcasts will also be carried on Beasley’s KCYE-FM.
“We’re truly excited about this new opportunity to expand KDWN’s presence in the Las Vegas market,” said Beasley Media Group Vice President and Market Manager Dennis Gwiazdon. “Not only does this provide our listeners with an additional choice to enjoy KDWN’s programming but an FM simulcast immediately adds value to our advertising customers.”
