KWID

KWID is a commercial radio station, licensed to Las Vegas, Nevada. The station broadcasts a Spanish-language adult hits format; the KWID studios are located in the unincorporated community of Spring Valley in Clark County and its transmitter is on Black Mountain in Henderson. Prior to the use of the call letters in Las Vegas, there was an unrelated shortwave radio station called KWID during World War II. Based in San Francisco, the original KWID was commissioned by the federal government to reach an international audience, it served as the basis for what became the Voice of America radio network. The station at 101.9 FM in Las Vegas signed on in 1963 as KRGN with an easy listening format. It took its call sign from E. W. Cragin; the Gilday Broadcasting Company bought the station in 1968. In 1974, the station changed its call sign to KFMS and flipped to an automated top 40 format branded "KFM 102". From 1978 to 1980, KFMS was an album-oriented rock outlet. On January 1, 1981, KFMS flipped to a country music format.

In 1997, Jacor Communications purchased Regent Communications and its stations, including KFMS, for $184.7 million. Jacor subsequently was purchased by Clear Channel Communications in 1999. On January 7, 2000 at 3 p.m. KFMS flipped to top 40 as "101.9 KISS-FM". KFMS simulcast KIIS-FM in Los Angeles, including Rick Dees' weekday morning program, while Buck Head from WFLZ-FM in Tampa hosted weeknights; the Buck Head Show was syndicated back to KYSR in Los Angeles until he was transferred to that market. The grouping of KIIS-FM in Los Angeles, KIIS in Santa Clarita, California, KAVS in the Antelope Valley, KYHT in Barstow/Victor Valley, KFMS in Las Vegas created nearly continuous coverage of KIIS-FM between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. However, KFMS was branded as "KISS" instead of "KIIS". Over time, KFMS began adding more local disc jockeys, including Kate and Rick Kelly from KQOL-FM. After KYHT flipped to hot adult contemporary in 2001, KFMS discontinued its simulcast of KIIS-FM, adjusted its format to include more hip hop music, added a local morning show hosted by Trejo and Nikki.

The station continued to air the nationally syndicated Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 program. In December 2002, 101.9 Kiss-FM signed off and KFMS began stunting for several days with a loop of "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns N' Roses. In January 2003, the station debuted a rhythmic contemporary format with the branding "Wild 102" and the slogan "Where Hip Hop Lives". On November 15, 2004, KWID flipped to Mexican oldies as "La Preciosa 101.9". In May 2008, Lotus Communications acquired KWID in a three-station swap with Clear Channel. In exchange for KZEP-FM in San Antonio, Lotus received KBKO-FM in Bakersfield, California; the new owner changed KWID to a Spanish adult hits format, branded "La Buena 101.9".

2017 All-Ireland Under-21 Hurling Championship Final

The 2017 All-Ireland Under-21 Hurling Championship final was a hurling match, played at Semple Stadium, Thurles on 9 September 2017 to determine the winners of the 2017 All-Ireland Under-21 Hurling Championship, the 55th season of the All-Ireland Under-21 Hurling Championship, a tournament organised by the Gaelic Athletic Association for the champion teams of the four provinces of Ireland. The final was contested by Kilkenny of Leinster and Limerick of Munster, with Limerick winning on a scoreline of 0-17 to 0-11; the All-Ireland final between Kilkenny and Limerick was a unique occasion as it was the first championship meeting between the two teams. Kilkenny were appearing in their first final in five years, while Limerick were lining out in their second final in three seasons. Limerick failed to settle early on and Shane Walsh wasted little time in pointing Kilkenny into an early lead. Limerick found the pace of the game and a string of points from Aaron Gillane, Barry Nash, Ronan Lynch and Peter Casey gave the Munster champions a 0-7 to 0-1 lead after 16 minutes.

The teams went point for point for a spell, however and Ronan Lynch pointed to give Limerick an 0-11 to 0-4 half-time cushion. Kilkenny struggled to cut into that seven-point advantage after the interval. Liam Blanchfield hit point number five for Kilkenny in the 43rd minute, but the response was immediate from Limerick when Casey pointed from the left. Alan Murphy took over the Kilkenny free-taking duties and fired three points for his side as Kilkenny closed the deficit to 0-14 to 0-8 with 11 minutes remaining. John Donnelly reduced the deficit to five points before a couple of quick points from placed balls from Murphy put Limerick under pressure. Gillane settled Limerick with a great score from the left before substitute Oisín O'Reilly clinched victory with a battling score after he was twice hooked in the build up. Limerick's All-Ireland victory was their first since 2015; the win gave them their sixth All-Ireland title over all and cemented their place in fifth position on the all-time roll of honour.

Limerick retained their 100% record of never losing a final
