What Happened To It?!?

I demand to know right now what happened to my favorite local radio station!!!


This afternoon as I got into my car after leaving work, I turned the radio on and hit my preset for Jack and a country song was playing. What the hell? What is Jack doing? I know they are diverse and all but country?

Unfortunately, it was not a joke. And even more unfortunate it was NOT JACK FM playing it!

JACK is no longer on 97.3. It has been taken over by yet another country music radio station. Like Oklahoma needs another one of those damn things.

I couldn't find JACK on any other station. I tried going to their website to get some answers and the site wouldn't come up.

Again....I demand to know what happened to JACK FM!!!

This is just not right!!! I'm calling my Congressman!!

  1. The country station that has taken over Jack’s spot on the dial is King Country, which currently lives on 93.3 FM (and actually at the moment it seems to be playing on both 97.3 and 93.3). Hopefully they will bring Jack back and put it on 93.3. What you should do is find out who owns the stations and contact them.

    From Radioinsight.com

    Tyler Media moved Country “King Country 93.3” KKNG Oklahoma City to 97.3, the former home of “Jack-FM” KOJK at 2:00pm today. The shift slides KKNG from the 100kw Class C signal to a weaker 1kw Class A rimshot. All air personalities at KKNG are out as well including morning hosts Bill Thomas and K.C. Shepherd. KKNG has also removed all currents and recurrents from the music mix and gone completely Classic Country.

    As far as 93.3 goes, it appears the Variety Hits format formerly on 97.3 will return in a new form. Tyler Media registered 933TimFM.com and TimFM933.com last week via a subsidiary.

    We wonder how the “Tim-FM” moniker will go over in Oklahoma City given the connection the 1995 bombing by Timothy McVeigh.

    Thanks to Kent Ahrens and Rob Zerwehk in putting together this story.
