Sonora, CA – KVML, the Mother Lode’s oldest radio station since 1949, is continuing its growth by adding an FM dial frequency where all existing AM 1450 KVML programming will be simulcast.
Effective Monday, the move, permitted by the FCC, will add a convenient FM home for the KVML listener.
Clarke Broadcasting President and CEO H. Randolph Holder says, “We are very excited to be able to provide this additional outlet for The Voice of the Mother Lode on 102.7, continuing our line of firsts including KVML as the first radio station, signing on in 1949 and KZSQ being the first FM in the Mother Lode in 1973. Although it is a ‘low power translator,’ it is our hope to be able to improve our market coverage for our listeners, especially during the short days and long nights of winter.”
The expansion to 102.7 on the FM is expected to not only provide enhanced daytime audio quality, but is expected to extend the evening coverage beyond the current signal of AM 1450 KVML.
Clarke Broadcasting General Manager Larry England adds, “The addition of the AM 1450 KVML programming on FM 102.7, will be well received by a younger audience. The support of KVML local news and conservative talk in Tuolumne County is strong and will now become even stronger with the new FM option”.
KVML provides “All News – All Morning” from 6-9am and breaking local news at the top and bottom of every hour. In addition, as part of its popular daily lineup, you can hear Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingram, Mark Levin and Dave Ramsey.
