Roll Over Beethoven and tell Billy Ray Cyrus the News
NBC4 is confirming that K-Mozart (KMZT) will indeed go country very soon, and infact will be called "Go Country 105", leaving KUSC the only other FM choice for all-classical all the time in LA, and giving us our first all-country FM station since KZLA made like a tree and left last year.
[KMZT Owner Saul] Levine scheduled a news conference for 11 a.m. Monday at the Museum of Television & Radio in Beverly Hills. The current KMZT, referred to as K-Mozart, years ago had a jazz format as KKGO. Levine said the new country format station "will be reinvented as KKGO 'Go Country 105."'
"The previous 105.1 classical format (K-Mozart) will remain on the station in its second HD channel, and be simulcast on 1260 AM," according to the station.
High-definition radio, or HD, is a relatively new development in American radio that provides enhanced sound and additional channels for individual radio stations. However, HD radios are more expensive than other radios and so far they are owned by few listeners. - NBC4
