For over three decades, 98.7 Kiss FM gave the Big Apple all the Soul and R&B it could handle … but no more.
Citing failing ratings, the legendary radio station stopped broadcasting at midnight Sunday.
Taking its place? Ugh, another sports talk radio station.
Kiss was renowned as part of the local African American community — in particular, it helped bring hip-hop to the mainstream back in the ‘80s.
Some of the station's most popular programs will be carried over to longtime rival, WLBS.
Steve Harvey’s show is one of the few surviving the transfer.
Harvey beat The Hunger Games at the box office but it didn't help him stop the historic radio station from closing its doors.
Are U New Yorkers sad to see it go?
