October 21, 2008 at 2:10 PM (PT)
SIERRA H BROADCASTING Top 40/Rhythmic KNRJ (ENERGY 92.7/101.1)/PHOENIX will be bidding the format adieu on OCTOBER 31st, PD BEAU DURAN tells ALL ACCESS.
In a letter to listeners, the station writes:
Dear ENERGY listeners,
For over six years, ENERGY 92.7 and 101.1 (KNRJ FM) has been broadcasting dance music to ARIZONA and worldwide on the web at energyarizonafm.com. ENERGY has enjoyed a long history, becoming the second oldest pure dance over-the-air radio station in AMERICA. It is with a heavy heart that we announce Energy Arizona will leave the airwaves at five p.m. on FRIDAY OCTOBER 31st. We want to thank everyone that has supported the radio station through the years, including our sponsors, the music industry and most importantly, you our thousands of listeners. Your support has been greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten.
As one door closes, another door opens. SIERRA H BROADCASTING is very excited to bring something new to listeners in ARIZONA. Join us and listen MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3rd at 9:27 in the morning for a brand new chapter in Valley radio.
Thanks for listening!
MICHAEL H. MALLACE/BEAU DURAN
GENERAL MANAGER/PROGRAM DIRECTOR
Afternoon host PISTOL PETE will be a casualty of the flip; He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. No other jobs will be lost as a result. Look for DURAN to stay on to program the new format in addition to programming responsibilities at sister station KAJM.
Said DURAN, "We plan to have some fun with our listeners from 5p on the 31st until 9:27a on the 3rd! That’s about all I can say about that. I will say that I would love to invite former ENERGY personalities back for one last airshift before the station signs off. They can contact me at email@example.com."
