During those hours when 620 KHB is not airing paid programming, the station has moved from 60s and 70s oldies to what owner Bob Stevens describes as a “variety” format. The music change occurred at midnight Saturday night (4/21). “I would say that the format is about seventy percent ‘TAE with a bit of “13Q” mixed in,” Stevens told PBRTV. WTAE-AM (1250) in the 1970s had a lite sound with groups like The Carpenters while WKTQ 13Q (1320 AM) had more of a rock sound to it. Clarke Ingram, operations manager/program director of 620 KHB and sister station 770 KFB, indicated that specialty programs such as the Saturday & Sunday polka shows, Ingram’s Saturday-afternoon oldies show and Jay Thurber’s Sunday-night program, would continue as before. KFB’s format remains unchanged with a focus on the 60s.
Meanwhile, we heard from a PBRTV reader who writes about KHB and KFB’s sister stations – “Just to let you know that translators on 105.1 FM and 104.1 FM are now up and running. Broadcast Communications Inc. is running the 106.9 FM WRIJ (Masontown, PA) programming on 104.1 & running 103.1 FM WANB (Waynesburg, PA) on 105.1 FM. I can pick up both as far north from Waynesburg, to about Washington, PA while driving on I-79. The signal of both, going I-79 reaches to about Morgantown, WV. Both reach into downtown Uniontown, PA while driving out US 40/PA 21.”
