BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) — Impact Radio Group of Boise, Idaho will be ending their tenure as an ESPN Sports Radio Affiliate.
The announcement came Friday.
99.1 FM will now be the new home for Idaho’s Pure Rock 99.1 I-Rock. The station will play Linkin Park, Rage Against the Machine, Slipknot, Godsmack, and Metallica.
Joey Jenkins, Program Director and Co-Host of The Drive on ESPN Boise, said “Being a part of the ESPN Sports Network has been a great experience and opportunity. Co-hosting The Drive alongside the talented Alex Gold has been a high point of my radio career and we are both excited for the new challenges that lie ahead for us individually.”
“We want to thank all of our fans and loyal sponsors of ESPN Boise for all of their support these past six years. The decision to change the format was not an easy one, but we are thrilled to bring the Treasure Valley community the true Rock station they have asked for and deserve,” said Darrell Calton, CEO of Impact Radio Group.
