KZZQ Blazes Out In Salt Lake City
July 7, 2011 at 3:56 AM (PT)
MILLCREEK Active Rock KZZQ (97.5 THE BLAZE)/SALT LAKE CITY has pulled the plug on their format to simulcast sister station Sports KZNS-A (1280 THE ZONE).
BLAZE PD ROGER ORTON told ALL ACCESS, "It is with a very heavy heart that I share this news with you. As of MIDNIGHT TONIGHT (7/7), KZZQ will no longer be Active Rock 97.5 THE BLAZE. Management has decided to simulcast our sister-station 1280 THE ZONE on this frequency. We just found out this morning that programming and on-air staff will be let go and the station we fought so hard for is done. Thank you all for your support over the last 7 months. Without you, we wouldn't have made it this long. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or APD/MD middayer KAYVON MOTIEE at email@example.com. KAYVON will still be here holding down the fort for the other stations. I'm going back to the beach."
