MARKER BROADCASTING has flipped Smooth Jazz KJJZ to Classic Rock KHRQ (Q 102.3)/PALM SPRINGS, CA effective TODAY with former OM/PD for KQRS/KXXR/WGVX/MINNEAPOLIS DAVE HAMILTON "un-retiring" to program. After 28 years in MINNEAPOLIS, HAMILTON retired in DECEMBER 2012 to live in PALM DESERT, CA.
He told ALL ACCESS, "I'm 'un-retiring' to become P.D. at KRHQ, a Classic Rock station launched today in my new adopted hometown. The PALM SPRINGS market is competitive for its size, with 16 viable local signals. Our plan is to deliver a station that stands out for pushing format boundaries ... keeping it interesting for music fans. The best part of this gig: Our studios are three blocks from my house."
The station is currently running jockless, but HAMILTON is looking for air talent to fill the station's dayparts. Reach out to HAMILTON at email@example.com if you're interested in playing Classic Rock in PALM SPRINGS.
