Changes at Salem radio

Salem Broadcasting, which owns Christian contemporary station KBIQ (102.7 FM) and Christian talk station KGFT (100.7 FM) and operates news-talk station KZNT (1460 AM), shook up its staff last week.

General manager Henry Tippie, news director Joe Myers and news reporter Molly Schmitt left the company. Roger Harris is the new general manager for the radio cluster.

Tippie is a former general manager for country station KKCS and adult contemporary station KKLI. Myers and Schmitt both previously reported for news-talk station KVOR (740 AM).

KZNT's loss (Joe Myers) could be someone else's gain!

KDZA moved their tower up to Cheyenne Mtn. and rebranded themselves, um, I forget. Anyway, there's no official word on a re-launch, but I expect they'll do it soon, assuming all the Clear Channel corporate stuff doesn't stand in the way.

On KVOR, you mean Charlie Stone? Or Wendy LaBree?

I actually like the format OK. Has anyone checked how far north you can receive that? It should get up to Castle Rock, based on the coverage map.

KDZA cant be picked up at the chapel hills mall without a high beam antenna. not a bad format choice but unlikely to be a top tier anything in the springs with the scratchy signal imho.

Been listening off and on, on line....not a bad format. If I hate one song, I like the next one.
