Strange Smoke Coming From The Blaze

ALL ACCESS is trying to get a fix on some curious goings-on in the neighborhood of MILLCREEK Rock KHTB (THE BLAZE)/SALT LAKE CITY. A guerrilla website, savetheblaze.com, has popped up that claims, "Right now, as your reading this, major corporate tycoons are planning to STEAL your locally owned and operated radio station. We have become too BIG for their liking and they don't like competition. Legally, nothing else can be said."
The site asserts that it will soon produce a newsletter that will provide more details, and that this "This is not a joke!" The allegations prompt some chin-scratching. So what's the bottom line here? Is MILLCREEK about to sell the station ... or is this a preemptive strike to prevent a format flip and a slew of layoffs? Only time will tell.
