Vanguard Media has dropped the Albuquerque targeted Dance “Pirate Radio” format on 96.7 KSFE Grants NM and has replaced it with Classic Hits “Interstate 96.7“.
Positioning as “Highway Radio”, the new format targets those driving on I-40 through Grants between Albuquerque and Gallup. While no web or social presence, KSFE can be streamed at this link.
The Dance format had debuted in January 2022. The brand was replicated under KSFE Content Director Zaid Gonzalez on 92.7 KREV San Francisco until its flip to Hip Hop. The launch of “Interstate 96.7” took place in mid-August concurrently with KREV’s flip.
In a Facebook comment Gonzalez noted, “I am sadly announcing that Pirate Radio 96.7 is officially OFF the air. Management has decided that EDM is not good for radio, and has resorted back to country and classic rock. ￼Very outside of the box thinking. Thank you all for your amazing support.”
