KIKO (1340 AM) is a radio station licensed to serve Miami, Arizona, USA. The station is owned by Shoecraft Broadcasting, Inc. It airs a News and Sports plus Oldies music format.[1]

The station was assigned the KIKO call letters by the Federal Communications Commission.[2]

In 2011 KIKO was issued an FCC construction permit to move to a new transmitter site, change the city of license to Apache Junction, Arizona and decrease night power to 930 watts. It will use a short (85 foot) low efficiency fiberglass whip antenna.

Ownership[edit]

In December 2007, 1TV.Com (John Low, president) reached an agreement to acquire KIKO and KIKO-FM from Shoecraft Broadcasting for a reported $1.025 million.[3] Broadcasting & Cable reported that the deal called for a $50,000 escrow deposit plus $725,000 cash at closing, then an additional $250,000 upon the FCC's issuance of a construction permit allowing 1TV.com to upgrade the facilities of KIKO-FM to Class C3. The FCC granted this voluntary transfer of license on February 19, 2008.[4]
