The Montana Radio Co. is selling its 950 KMTX AM station, and starting Tuesday it will be found among the Cherry Creek stations and at 950 AM.
The companion signal on 96.3 FM will also be joining the Cherry Creek Radio stations, a news release from Cherry Creek Radio stated.
“They needed one, we had one, so we sold it to them,” Angela Terry, the Montana Radio Co. manager, said on Tuesday.
Montana Radio Co. has had the two signals that will go to Cherry Creek since Jan. 1, 2013, she said. As a result of the sale, the Montana Radio Co. will have six radio stations and broadcasts in Missoula and Great Falls as well as Helena.
With the move of 950 KMTX-AM to Cherry Creek Radio, the 1340 AM frequency will be retired, but its call letters, KCAP-AM, will transfer. The new station will be known as "950 K-CAP -- your news and information station," the Cherry Creek Radio news release said.
Tony Driskill, general manager of Cherry Creek Radio in Helena, could not be immediately reached for this story.
