97.3 KBCO/Denver Inducted Into Colorado Music Hall of Fame


iHeartMedia's 97.3 KBCO (World Class Rock) Denver-Boulder, has become the first-ever FM radio station inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame. The ceremonies took place Monday night at the Paramount Theater in Denver. The station was recognized as one of the most influential radio station stations in music, community involvement and multimedia. The Colorado Music Hall of Fame honors those who have made outstanding contributions, to preserve and protect historical artifacts and to educate the public regarding everything that's great about Colorado's music.

97.3 KBCO staff past and present gathered on stage and were recognized for their contributions. National touring artist Amos Lee read the proclamation and presented the award to Program Director Scott Arbough. Additional highlights from the night included a special video tribute from Nathaniel Rateliff as well as a video highlight reel of 97.3 KBCO's accomplishments from throughout the years.

Hitting the airwaves in 1977, 97.3 KBCO has created an alternative to standard rock and pop radio with a format known as Adult Alternative Album. The station is known to dig deep into album tracks as well as crossing typical format genre lines. 97.3 KBCO is nationally regarded as a station for artists to break. A few artists that attribute their success to 97.3 include Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Bonnie Raitt and Lyle among others.

"97.3 KBCO is in an elite class of radio stations that can truly be called iconic," said iHeartMedia Denver Region President Tim Hager. "This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the KBCO staff. We're fortunate to have a passionate group of professionals who are committed to creating unique, Colorado-centric content year after year."
