KKEG ("The Keg") Moves To 98.3 For Stronger Broadcasting

Longtime rock radio favorite, KKEG- 98.3-FM, which is now celebrating 40 years in Northwest Arkansas, has increased its power to a 100,000-watt channel. The Cumulus station moved from 92.1-FM on the dial to its new home on June 5. The station broadcast on both frequencies, 98.3-FM and 92.1-FM, until midnight Wednesday. A new station will be launched on 92.1-FM.

“The new coverage area for 98.3 The KEG is our way of thanking Northwest Arkansas by making this great rock station available to more than 100,000 new potential listeners,” said C.J. Jones, vice president and market manager for Cumulus.

The 98.3 frequency was formerly the home of Cumulus’ country station Sam 98. Other Cumulus FM stations in Northwest Arkansas are: US 94 Classic Country, Power 105.7 contemporary hits, Y 94.9 adult contemporary and AM stations News Talk 1030 and 1590 La Maquina Spanish radio.
