But for the benefit of those of you not up for playing Cryptic Moderator 
Theatre tonight... :-)

Citadel sold KGA to Mapleton last year. Mapleton owns KPIG 1510 in 
Piedmont (Oakland/San Francisco), and KPIG can substantially increase 
power if KGA no longer receives the protection of a class A signal.

KGA is in the process of being more or less dismantled; its news and 
talk programming is being swapped with diplexed KJRB 790, leaving KGA as 
the market's #2 sports station.

Even under Citadel, KGA was a pale shell of its former self. There are 
two other news-talkers in the market with arguably better signals - CC's 
KQNT 590 (5 kW ND-U) and Morgan Murphy's KXLY 920 (20 kW D/5 kW N ND-U) 
- so Spokane will continue to have lots of local service for a market 
its size.
