CAPITAL PUBLIC RADIO noncommercial News-Talk-Jazz KXJZ/SACRAMENTO and its rebroadcasters in RENO, STOCKTON, and QUINCY will drop the station's evening and overnight Jazz programming, moving all Jazz shows to sister Classical KXPR. The move will bring several public radio shows to the KXJZ lineup, including "THE SPLENDID TABLE," "MARKETPLACE MONEY," and the CBC's "Q" with JIAN GHOMESHI.
The SACRAMENTO BUSINESS JOURNAL reports that the evening "EXCELLENCE IN JAZZ" will take over 7-11p on KXPR, with some weekend Jazz shows also making the move. Listeners who prefer full-time Classical or Jazz are being referred to the stations' online CLASSICALSTREAM and JAZZSTREAM channels. The move is effective TUESDAY and will be accompanied by a new smartphone app streaming all of the stations' programming.
