It had already been sold and was in the process of shutting down the news operation when the Young Country tower fell, forcing it to give the frequency over to the co-owned country station.
Yes, I know....KEWS sold to a Christian Broadcaster. However, why did "Young Country" KYNG get the favored status of moving to another frequency for uninterrupted operations when any other station would have put up their own temporary antenna, etc. to get back on the air without interrupting/terminating other stations? Not that it matters now since KYNG is long gone.
And to keep from having my views twisted, The tower falling was a horrible tragedy. I hope the families of the 3 people killed that day are doing well as I still send them my condolences for their loss.
