Crain Media’s 99.1 KRZS-FM Pangburn/Searcy AR will gain its third format of 2015 on Christmas Day. As first indicated in our 12/11 Daily Domains, KRZS has confirmed it will flip to Classic Rock “99.1 The Hawg” at 12pm on Friday, December 25. KRZS previously flipped from News/Talk to Classic Country “99.1 The Stallion” in June.
Crain Media has rearranged its Searcy, AR cluster northeast of Little Rock. The Conservative Talk format and call letters of “News/Talk 99.1” KSMD Pangburn has moved to what was 1300 KRZS/106.5 K293CE Searcy. That makes room for the launch of Classic Country “99.1 The Stallion” on 99.1 KRZS. 1300 KRZS/106.5 K293CE and 1370 KAWW Heber Springs had been running a Sports format as “106.5 The Champion” utilizing much of the programming originating at former sister “93.3 The Jock” KKSP Bryant/Little Rock. That station is now operated by Salem Media as Christian AC “93.3 The Fish“. KAWW has flipped to a simulcast of sister Country 99.9 KWCK Searcy.
