    Guess what – everyone who LOVED what the KRUZ was with their adult alternative format will now stop listening. Why would you want to compete with a currently-successful station when you could DOMINATE the market in your own genre?? There are no adult alternative stations in NWA now. And believe me when I say it’s a huge untapped market.

    Stupid idea, Cumulus – you made a big mistake.

    Plus – in the morning I want to hear local info and news, not Kid Kraddick and his yahoos. I love Kristen – she’s a fresh voice in NWA radio and would almost listen just to hear her in the afternoons. But if you’re going to play soft rock and pop, I’m out.

    I just moved from Chicago and the KRUZ was my favorite station on the radio since the move. I won’t listen to the new format (if I did I would just listen to 107.9), so I guess my dial will be stuck on 93.3 the Eagle from now on.

    I didn’t expect the same quality radio as in Chicago, but for a metro area as big as NWA I expected better, especially with the U of A being in the area. With the KRUZ gone, it doesn’t look as if things will be getting better.
