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. Log in to Reply Jim March 31, 2012 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. Log in to Reply Add Comment Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
