Mount Wilson FM has flipped Classical “K-Mozart” 97.9 KMZT-FM Salinas/Monterey, CA to Country “Z-Country 97.9“.
The new format is launching with 10,000 songs commercial free and brings a second Country station to the market joining Clear Channel’s 92.7 KTOM-FM Marina. With the change, 97.9 has returned to its previous KYZZ call letters.
The Classical format will remain on 95.9 KMZT-FM (formerly KYZZ) Big Sur and 95.1 K236BK Monterey. Mount Wilson acquired KYZZ in 2013 and flipped the station from Sports to Classical last August. The company also owns Jazz 1240 KNRY in the market.
Mount Wilson also owns “Go Country 105” KKGO Los Angeles
