KMOK Enters Canyon Country While KVTY Flows Into The River

McVey Entertainment Group closed on its $350,000 purchase of CHR “Y105” 105.1 KVTY Lewiston, Country “106.9 The Outlaw” KMOK Lewiston and Classic Country 1350 KRLC/93.1 K226CT Lewiston ID from Ida-Vend Company.

With the change in operating control the company has begun making changes at its newly acquired stations. The first move sees the merger of Hot AC “103.9 The River” K280FQ and “Y105” as the River branding shifts from the translator to KVTY as “105.1 The River“.

KMOK rebranded as “Canyon Country 106.9“. Matt Dangerfield, who had hosted mornings on K280FQ, moves to KMOK. The station is launching with a trip giveaway to see Garth Brooks in Salt Lake City.

McVey also owns Conservative Talk 950 KOZE/95.5 K238CI and Rock “Z-Rock” 96.5 KOZE-FM Lewiston.
