After many years on the air, the San Diego sports radio station Mighty 1090 stopped all remaining broadcasts Monday.
The station had been streaming its shows on various digital platforms after they were pulled off air earlier this month, but Monday all operations were ceased.
A statement on the station’s website reads: For the last two weeks, Mighty 1090 programming has only been available online and through our mobile app. We can’t thank you enough for bearing with us through this ordeal. Unfortunately, we have ceased operations. We are forever grateful for your passion, loyalty, and all your support over the years.
Longtime 1090 announcer Scott Kaplan of the Scott and BR Show live tweeted that employees were told at 11 a.m. Monday of the final shutdown and were told to clear out by 4 p.m.

Darren Smith, another of 1090’s on-air personalities, thanked supporters Monday on Twitter and said that the parent company, Broadcast Company of the Americas, “killed our radio stream.”
We were just told that our parent company killed the stream, officially killing our radio station. Will have more information as it becomes available. Thank you all for your support.

But by Tuesday, 1090’s Scott Kaplan and sidekick Billy Ray Smith were back on the “air,” streaming on YouTube with the help of Carlsbad’s Callaway Golf.

“Thank you who all tuned in today. And a huge thanks to @CallawayGolf for hosting us in their amazing studio! https://youtu.be/Fss0Zx_D5ZM,” @ScottandBR tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

The radio duo has posted several YouTube videos of their show since news of 1090’s impending demise surfaced in mid April.
