June 22, 2007 at 5:19 PM (PT)
It finally happened -- as ALL ACCESS tipped earlier, CBS Talker KZON (FREE FM 101.5)/PHOENIX flipped at 5:05p to Top 40/Rhythmic as "THE NEW 101.5 JAMZ, BLAZIN' THE VALLEY'S HITZ AND HIP HOP." KZON, which will keep its call letters, spent 24 hours stunting as "FREE PARIS 101.5."
The first song on the new station: DA SHOP BOYZ's "Party Like A Rock Star." Listen online when you click here.
"PHOENIX's young-adult population is growing exponentially, and this station is exactly what they're looking for," said CBS RADIO/PHOENIX Sr. VP MARK WATERS. "We've tailored the station's lineup to reflect the interests of the typical 18-34-year-old whose musical tastes are on the cutting edge of popularity."
CBS RADIO Top 40/Rhythmic KSFM/SACRAMENTO OM/PD BYRON KENNEDY will serve as interim PD of KZON. An immediate nationwide search is underway to fill the position on a permanent basis. Additionally, on-air staff will be announced in the coming weeks.
