Created and formatted by Andrew Harle in 1998, The BOSS Radio Network is one of the few radio station properties across the country that is locally owned and operated and features a hand-picked music format. BOSS MUSIC 100.7 FM (KPPT) and BOSS TALK 1230 AM & 100.7-2 HD (KCUP), is the #1 radio station in Lincoln County among adults 35 years of age and older (source: Arbitron's 2008 ranking). The philosophy is to provide music that is recognizable to the listener the moment your tune in to the radio station. Heading out of Portland, Salem, or Eugene to the Oregon coast? Just turn the dial to 100.7 BOSS FM and every piece of music you grew up with will be on the air. It's always 'Good Times and Great Music." BOSS is known for its contests, marketing techniques, listener involvement, and the creativity of the radio commercials for hundreds of advertisers on the Oregon coast and in the Northwest.
BOSS Radio was well known in Los Angeles in the 50's & 60's and continues today on the Oregon coast as the "hottest radio station around." The primary objective of the BOSS Radio Network is to promote local Lincoln county businesses and services. The central Oregon coast is nestled just 2 1/2 hours west of Portland. The county has 39, 500 residents with the average age of 44 years old. Lincoln County is filled with cultural artists, writers, and theater pros.
Since there is no daily newspaper in Lincoln County, The BOSS Radio Network features local and regional news throughout the day as a community service. The radio station encourages residents, organizations, clubs, service groups, and all county, state and local governments to use our stations as a source for information and education.
