KUSC Extends Central Coast Service

Classical KUSC 91.5 (FM) has expanded its service to the central coast, according to station president Brenda Barnes.

Barnes said that KUSC, which is licensed to USC, has purchased KESC, which broadcasts from Morro Bay. KESC will be the only full-time classical music station serving the central coast community.

“We are very pleased to bring our all-classical format to the central coast,” Barnes said. “We extend a warm welcome to classical music listeners in the area, and we look forward to supplementing the excellent classical music programming offered by KCBX.”

Broadcasting on KESC 99.7 FM begins today. The broadcast facility is located eight miles north of San Luis Obispo and offers KUSC the potential of reaching approximately 270,000 new listeners 24 hours a day. KUSC currently serves more than 800,000 listeners in Southern California and beyond.

Located in downtown Los Angeles, Classical KUSC uses digital transmission technology to broadcast commercial-free, uninterrupted classical performances.
