State's oldest radio station switches to Spanish

"WKY-AM 930, Oklahoma’s first radio station, switched Monday to Spanish language programming.

The station dropped its news/talk format and began simulcasting Spanish station KINB-FM 105.3, also owned by Citadel Communications.

“We looked at our profile at KINB (La Indomable), and at the growing population for Latinos in Oklahoma City, and realized the success we could reach between our La Indomable listeners and our advertisers,” Citadel Oklahoma City operations manager Chris Baker said in an e-mail Monday."
