Special Announcement from KMZK-FM 106.9 Radio Z
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 02, 2022
“Hello friends and listeners of Radio Z,
I wanted to first THANK YOU all for your continued listener support of our station during this time of transition and rebuilding after the catastrophic winter power failure and lightning strike that took our transmitter and antenna completely out.
As you know, we have been working on a temporary antenna situation, at lower power, as we began working on a new tower deal and getting new equipment purchased to get us back on the air as soon as possible. All the equipment has been purchased and ready for install. However, we have run into a few issues regarding the new tower site and are working hard on a quick resolution so that we can get working on building out the new transmitter and antenna. I will hopefully have an update in the next week or so on the status of a new antenna site. As soon as I know, I will get the information out to you as soon as I can.
In the meantime, coming up on 08/06/2022, Radio Z will be temporarily taken off air to begin transiting equipment from our current studio location to its new location. We are expecting to only have the signal dead for a short time, however, these things sometimes don’t exactly go as planned, therefore it might be down for longer than expected. Also, once the signal does come back on, the sound and feel of the station will be completely different. You will hear more of an 80’s and 90’s mix, with no commercial interruptions. Don’t fear my friends, this is only a temporary change to allow us to go on a backup automation system to allow us to move our current operation to its new home. We hope to return Radio Z back to its normal operations by Midnight Monday 08/08/2022.
So again, THANK YOU for your continued support of 106.9 Radio Z and we hope these future changes work to make a better station for you.
LD Grant – President/CO-Owner”
