Original Entry 3/12/08 4:00pm: CBS Radio’s Smooth Jazz “95.7 The Wave” KHJZ Houston will be flipping to CHR as “Hot 95.7”. The logo above appeared on the CBS Radio webserver earlier today. Net Gnomes have discovered the anonymous registrations of Hot957fm.com and HotHits957.com, along with .net and .org variations which fit with the proposed format. When the flip occurs, Houston will join New York, Washington D.C., and Denver as major markets that have lost Smooth Jazz in the past few weeks.

The full version of the logo linked above can be seen on the CBS Server here.
