Another Colorado public-radio station is now offering separate channels for news and music.
Greeley-based KUNC on Monday switched its main 91.5 FM frequency to an all-news-and-information format, and introduced an all-popular-music service branded as The Colorado Sound at 105.5 FM.
KUNC previously alternated between news and music at 91.5 FM.
105.5 FM used to be the Denver-area channel for ESPN. Front Range Sports Network agreed to sell the signal to KUNC in December; ESPN Denver is now heard on 1600 AM, a sister station of FM signal Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan. Those stations are properties of Salt Lake City-based Bonneville International Corp.
The 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. period on KUNC that used to feature music will now offer the programs "On Point," hosted by Tom Ashbrook; "The Takeaway," with John Hockenberry; and the "Fresh Air" interview show with Terry Gross.
