As National Pride Month commences, Entercom expands its LGBTQ+ Talk Radio Network “Channel Q” to five new markets – Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, San Diego, and Washington D.C. – and adds an additional Class B signal in San Francisco via KGMZ (1550).
“The expansion of Channel Q to six new stations is a significant step as we strive towards further inclusion throughout our country,” Senior VP/Market Manager Jeff Federman said in a release. “We are proud to expand our company’s efforts in providing a voice and representation to the LGBTQ+ community just in time for Pride celebrations nationwide.”
In addition to KGMZ, which was simulcasting “95.7 The Game” KGMZ-FM, “Channel Q” can now be heard on the following outlets: KVIL-HD3 Dallas (103.7), KALC-HD2 Denver (105.9), KRBZ-HD2 Kansas City (96.5), KXSN-HD3 San Diego (98.1) and WIAD-HD2 Washington, DC (94.7). In San Francisco, “Channel Q” continues on KLLC-HD2 (97.3).
The additional stations bring the market count for “Channel Q” to 19, and with the addition of Dallas places the station in each of the Top 5 markets.
The station, which debuted in October 2018 and originates on the HD2 channel of CHR KAMP Los Angeles (97.1), added six new markets – New York, Chicago, Boston, Miami, Portland, OR and Hartford – earlier this year.
