What was that station I heard at 1300 AM this evening here in North Tacoma? It wasn’t KKOL-Seattle. It was classic country music from Carson City, NV.
KCMY 1300, which simulcasts on 102.5 FM, plays Waylon & Willie, Johnny Cash, the wonderful Miss Reba McEntire, Dolly, and all those artists that the station calls the “legends of country music.” I could not find a website, but the station has a Facebook page. The Facebook page has not been updated since 2015.
The station, KCMY, is locally-owned by Evans Broadcast Company. Evans operates four stations in Northern Nevada, serving Reno and Carson City. KCMY operates at 5 kilowatts day and 120 watts nighttime power.
News/Talk 99.1 KKFT and Cowboy Country KCMY broadcast from Carson City, also serving Reno, while The Wolf (Country) KWFP 92.1 and Adult Contemporary FUN 101/KRFN broadcast from their studios in Reno and cover Carson City as well.
KCMY and KWFP compete for the Country listeners with TEN Country (ten in a row, all day, modern country) 97.3 KOLC, Carson City, which is owned by Reno Media Group. Reno Media Group is Northern Nevada’s largest media company with eight radio stations. The Ten Country morning show is Big D & Bubba, the music artists include current artists such as Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, and Miranda Lambert.
Also in that group of eight stations is 96.9 The Rodeo, KLCA, Reno. This is the HD3 channel of KLCA 96.5, their Alternative station licensed to Tahoe City. The Rodeo plays Great Country from the 80’s and 90’s. Classic Country fans may debate that claim.
K-Bull, 98.1 KBUL FM is owned by Cumulus and has studios and offices in South Reno, serving the Reno-Sparks communities. Their website was uncooperative when I attempted to find information about the station.
If five country music stations are not enough for the area, there is also The Voice of the Lahontan Valley, KVLV 980 AM in Fallon, NV. KVLV at 5 kW just reaches the eastern portions of both Reno and Carson City.
