CBS Launches Reggae Format On HD-2 Frequency


This new format is in Las Vegas, which is considered the Ninth Island by the Hawaiian community. “98.5 Da Shaka, Vegas’ Island and Reggae Station,” is launching on 98.5 KLUC’s HD-2 frequency. The station is programmed by Operations Manager JB King and Yung Jon Que (Jon Quiamzon). Born and raised in Hawaii, Que is a veteran of multiple Hawaiian radio stations.

“It is very exciting to offer an HD format and live stream for the Las Vegas Hawaiian and Island community, which has been steadily growing in Vegas for well over two decades,” said King. “98.5 Da Shaka will feature a mix of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music. We are very fortunate to have some passionate team members creating the sound on 98.5 Da Shaka.”

Senior Vice President and Market Manager Tony Perlongo added, “The station is unlike any other offering in the market. It brings the music of the islands to Las Vegas and will cater to those looking for a station that soothes and relaxes just like the islands.”
