KYDO Granted Non-comm Status

KYDO 96.1 MHz Campo completed its transition from Imperial Valley CHR powerhouse to satellite-sourced Christian broadcaster with FCC approval April 23 of a change to non-commercial status. The station, owned by the Educational Media Foundation, broadcasts “Air-1” format.

EMF bought KSIQ late in 2013 from Cherry Creek Broadcasting, who had in 2010 moved the station from Brawley to near San Diego to increase its listenership. The 25kW ERP transmitter site is north of Campo on a water tower. KYDO has a 700 watt booster atop Mt. San Miguel with its city of license Santee.
