To learn the following information: "friendly name," on-air personalities/shows, station executives, recent news, competitors, podcasts, apps, and associations/partnerships, about these Meruelo Radio stations: KDAy, KDEY, and KPWR, all located in the Los Angeles, California area.

Recent News

93.5 KDAY/Los Angeles & (93.5 KDEY/Riverside
  • June 2019: KDAY recently moved personality Cece Valencia to KDAY from KPWR to co-host the "KDAY Morning Show with Cece & Romeo." The move back is a homecoming of sorts for Cece, who "famously did middays on KDAY until February 2018," when she was moved to WPRW to co-host that station's morning show.

KPRW - Power 106
  • J. Cruz, host of the morning programming, "The Cruz Show," left Power 106 (KPWR) to join iHeartMedia's "Real 92.3" KRRL LA's afternoon lineup in April 2019.
  • Celebrity Nick Cannon joined Power 106's morning lineup as the main host and producer of "Nick Cannon Mornings" beginning on June 17, 2019.
  • KPRW (Power 106) was purchased by the Meruelo Group for $82.75 million in 2017.

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
As the initial research provided the "friendly name" and recent news for KDAY, KDEY, and KPWR, but not the other requested information, we recommend continued research to find the following information for 93.5 KDAY (Los Angeles)/93.5 KDEY (Riverside): competitors, on-air personalities and shows, executives, podcasts & apps (its own independent ones or ones through aggregates like iHeartRadio, TuneIn, etc.), and associations with any of the following companies? Triton Digital, Spreaker, Omny Studios, The Complete Sheet, JacApps, Dataminr, and StreamGuy. Please note that programming aired on 93.5 KDAY/Los Angeles is aired simultaneously on 93.5 KDEY/Riverside because they are simulcast partners.
Additionally, we recommend continued research to find the following information for 105.9 KPWR (Power 106): competitors, on-air personalities and shows, executives, podcasts & apps (its own independent ones or ones through aggregates like iHeartRadio, TuneIn, etc.), and associations with any of the following companies?
