Denver Radio: Smokin' 94.1 To Be Snuffed Out

The pot-branded format of KBUD 1550 AM and K231BQ Smokin' 94.1 T-FM in Denver will be snuffed out this coming Friday.

The translator has been simulcasting KBUD 1550 AM's Classic Rock-pot-based format since June. But iHeartMedia has now purchased the translator from Marco Broadcasting and Marc Paskin for a reported $950K.  No word on the new format for KBUD-AM.

iHM will use the 250-watt translator to simulcast it's N/T KOA 850 AM (50 Kw) , which can also be heard via clustermate KBCO 97.3 FM HD3.

In July, computer hackers were able to knock KBUD 1550 AM / K231BQ Smokin’ 94.1 FM off the air. Station owner Marc Paskin, whose alter ego is Gary Ganja, said the hackers basically wiped out the radio station. The hacking incident follows a complaint filed by iHM with the FCC about alleged interference to its RhythmicTop40  KPTT 95.7 FM The Party.
