94.1 The Buzz WMBZ Memphis flips to Rhythmic AC Snap! 94.1

This one is very much an example of the cause-and-effect of corporate mergers. Consider the previous format change at 94.1 FM. Entercom had just closed on the purchase of WOGY-FM from Sinclair Broadcasting in January, 2000. The ink was barely dry on this purchase when it became obvious to most observers that the writing was […]

102.1 The Zone KOZN flips to AC Star 102 KSRC

It seems like Modern AC on 102.1 was doomed from the very beginning. When legendary KYYS “KY-102″ was blown up in favor of “102.1 the Zone” in 1997, listeners did not welcome the new station. This backlash, along with the station’s similarity to CHR sister KMXV, resulted in a change to AC as “Star 102″ […]

104.7 KZZP Returns After 5 Year Hiatus

KZZP. During the 80’s, those call letters were synonymous with what was great about Phoenix radio. KZZP was the market’s legendary CHR during that decade. However, in April 1991, like many CHRs across the country, KZZP was forced to make big changes due to declining ratings and the polarization of the CHR format; they flipped […]
