KOY-AM adds Smooth Jazz evenings, weekends


Clear Channel’s Adult Standards KOY-AM has added Broadcast Architecture’s Smooth Jazz format evenings and weekends on “The Coyote.” The station also simulcasts 24/7 on 95-5 KYOT HD-2. The station will also air the only smooth jazz countdown show for radio, The Smooth Jazz Top 20 Countdown on Saturday mornings.

Said Smokey Rivers, Director of Programming & Operations, Clear Channel Media & Entertainment/Phoenix: “I, and many fellow Phoenicians, smile when I hear the words “Smooth Jazz on The Coyote” on the radio. We are airing the Smooth Jazz Network 24/7 on 95.5 KYOT HD-2; and simulcasting nights, overnights and weekends on
AM 1230. We have maintained our online relationship with local smooth jazz fans. The result: Immediate positive listener feedback, and we are just in Day One”.

Broadcast Architecture Owner/President Allen Kepler says this marks their fifth return of the format in the past 12 months. Recent converts include: WNWV Cleveland (Smooth AC), WLOQ Orlando 102.5FM, The OASIS in Detroit and KBDB-AM 1400 in Reno.
