Why my radio sounded different

When I went to Las Vegas this past weekend for the first time since February, I punched up ESPN Radio AM 920 like I usually do, but things sounded a little different.

Here's why, according to a February 20 article:

You'll need a scorecard to follow the format changes for three Lotus Communications stations in Las Vegas. Starting March 3, KENO-AM (1460) will drop Fox Sports and pick up the Spanish-language ESPN Deportes. At the same time, KBAD-AM (920) will become the Fox Sports affiliate - dropping ESPN Sports talk. However, ESPN Sports won't be leaving Las Vegas, as KWWN-AM (1100) will flip the switch and carry ESPN. A staffer at Lotus Communications tells Radio-Info the rock formats on KXPT-FM (97.1) and KOMP-FM (92.3) in Las Vegas will remain the same. Lotus owns 24 radio stations in Arizona, Nevada, California, and Texas.

In essence, once I crossed the Cajoh Pass, I could listen to Fox Sports Radio for my entire trip, since I could also hear it on AM 610 out of Lancaster.

Of course, there's no pure Fox Sports Radio show in Los Angeles, since AM 570 usually carries its own programming. So I'm not really sure what they're doing these days, although Krystal Fernandez is apparently still affiliated with them.
