KMMJ Radio no longer “regional Mexican”, but 163 others are

Posted by chad612 on June 1, 2009

As rapidly as things change in the world of broadcast radio, I wanted to look into what some of the stations mentioned in Translation Nation were doing now:

“…Spanish-language KMMJ, broadcasting live from a park in Grand Island, Nebraska…”

We spent a very long night in Grand Island on our way to California last fall. Henry Fonda was from there but, like us, he got out. KMMJ is now an English-language Christian network and Jacinto Corona is no longer mentioned on their website:


KFTA is still in Spanish, however. According to the radio-locator website, there are 163 “regional Mexican” stations in the US:


KFTA-AM 970 kHz
Rupert, Idaho
“La Fantastica 970”
