From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
KCKY (1150 AM) is a radio station in Pinal County, Arizona. The station is licensed to the city of Coolidge and is owned by the Cortaro Broadcasting Corporation.
KCKY airs mostly Spanish-language Christian programming, simulcasting with KASA in Phoenix much of the time through a local marketing agreement with that station's owner.
It is also used for an NDB-Approach into Coolidge Airfield.
In KCKY's earlier history, it was an English-language country music station. Singers Lee Hazelwood and Waylon Jennings worked at KCKY briefly in the 1950s. Hazelwood hosted a weekly Saturday night show on the station which featured guitarist Duane Eddy and a house band.
KCKY also served as the longtime Arizona play-by-play affiliate of the Chicago Cubs radio network, and the station's daytime signal could reach the southern and eastern edges of the Phoenix metropolitan area where many Cub fans lived.
