It’s the end of the road for popular NYC radio station WRKS-FM, better known as KISS. The urban R&B station goes all sports soon when it becomes the new voice of ESPN New York. That’s when ESPN abandons its longtime spot on the AM dial, as WFAN, to move over to the FM dial. According to Crain’s New York Business, the current WFAN slot on the AM dial will switch to broadcasting ESPN sports news in Spanish, to take advantage of the growing “Latino population and the enthusiasm for sports among Hispanic men.”. KISS is teaming up with its former arch-rival R&B station WBLS-FM, with some KISS staffers and on-air personalities joining the WBLS staff, and others being let go. KISS has been on the air for 30 years. As the saying goes — kiss WRKS goodbye, and stay tuned. The change-over is scheduled for Monday, April 30th.
