Flood Communications one-step closer to opening new studios in downtown Sidney

SIDNEY - For the first time in nearly 70 years, KSID Radio will not broadcast from their original home in Sidney's Legion Park. The final broadcast from the studios took place during the live call in show, "Swap Shop," on Thursday morning.   

That afternoon, employees with Central Electronics out of Kearney, Neb., (the chief engineers for KSID and Flood Communications), removed computers and other broadcast equipment from the Legion Park studios and installed them at the new location at 836 10th Ave. in downtown Sidney.

Both KSID-FM (98.7 FM) and KSID-AM (1340 AM, 95.7 FM) remain on-air. However, there are temporary changes to programming and there may be disruptions. News, sports, market updates and Sports Nightly will not air during the transition. Streaming is also not available until the installation of equipment was complete at the new location.

The latest in news, sports and weather are still available on newschannelnebraska.com, the NCN app and News Channel Nebraska TV.

The move is also affecting the business phone lines. If you need to contact KSID immediately, please email corr@newschannelnebraska.com.

Flood Communications, the owning company of KSID, announced in September 2020 they would be moving the current studios to Hickory St. Square. The broadcast company, which operates 10 radio stations and seven television stations, acquired KSID Radio from Suzy Ernest and Dead-Short Broadcasting in Oct. 2019.
