More News For Boise State Radio


...Which means, of course, less jazz, on its AM stations.

Boise State announced this morning it would be cutting back on its jazz offerings on its two AM stations, and focusing those stations on news.

"The AM side of the dial is where many people look for news and talk radio," said John Hess, general manager.

Starting July 2, KBSU 730AM in Boise and KEZJ 1450 AM in Twin Falls will start hearing more talk, less horns.

Jazzworks will remain on the schedule from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday, midnight to 6 a.m. Saturday and midnight to 7 a.m. Sunday. Jazz can also be heard on KBSU 90.3 FM from 8-11 p.m. Saturday.

Of course, they say, you can still get a 24-hour, seven-days online stream of jazz from their Web site.

Some new treats for grumpy listeners, though: the new lineup includes "Bob Edwards Weekend," "The World," "On Point," "Here and Now," and more.
