WY Radio: Edwards Closes On Four Stations

Edwards Communications announced this week they have consummated the purchase of 4 radio stations in Fremont and Hot Springs Counties, Wyoming.

The stations, KFCW 93.1 FM, (formerly KTRZ), KWYW 99.1 FM, KDNO 101.7 FM and KTHE-1240 AM, will now join KTAK 93.9 FM and KVOW 1450 AM to form the Wind River Radio Network.

The stations are currently airing commercial free until at least June 20.

Wyoming’s Big Country KTAK 93.9 FM will continue to provide Mainstream Country to Fremont County radio listeners. KTAK-FM also has translators at 104.1 FM in Lander and 106.3 FM in Dubois.  KVOW-1450 AM will continue to provide Talk Radio.

The new format for KFCW 93.1 FM will combine Classic Rock with a blend of Today’s Best Rock and will be known as Wind River’s Rock!  KFCW, (Fremont County Wyoming), also has a translator in Lander at 95.3 FM.

It will be All Sports, All the Time on KWYW-99.1 FM.  KWYW will be a part of the ESPN Radio Network and will feature Colorado Rockies Baseball, Denver Broncos Football, Wyoming Cowboy Football and Men’s Basketball.

KDNO-101.7 FM will feature the best classic country music from Country’s Legends. At this point, future plans for KTHE are being developed.

Ray Rintamaki, Wind River Radio Network General Manager, said, “The entire staff is excited about the additional offerings and choices for local radio listeners.”  We are going to encourage folks to give us a listen by kicking things off with a $10,000 Giveaway on the new stations, with cash prizes each weekday and a grand prize of $2,500 to be given away at the Fremont County Fair later this summer.”  Rintamaki added, “We’ll also be able to broadcast more area team’s sports as well as fill listeners in on events and happenings across the entire Wind River Radio Network listening area.”
