Iowa Radio Stations Moving on the Dial
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Two central Iowa radio stations will be switching frequencies starting Tuesday. Iowa Public Radio will be moving from 101.7 to 97.7 and KPUL Pulse 99.5 FM will move to the 101.7 spot. The changes were approved last fall by the Federal Communications in order to accommodate a tower move by KTIA-FM 99.3 radio in Boone. The tower will move from Boone to Huxley to enable to Christian Talk station to serve the Des Moines Market. The move would have squeezed the KTIA frequency 99.3 onto the 99.5 the Pulse. KTIA-FM will not be changing frequency, and will remain at 99.3.
