Clear Channel Radio has switched the Smooth Jazz format heard on KIJZ-FM in Portland, OR in favor of a Classic Hits format now called "Kool 105.9 FM."
Regional VP of Programming Tony Coles will program the station with
assistance from listeners, who can create their own 15-song playlists from
Kool's web site. According to industry reports, the ratings and ad support
just wasn't there to keep the smooth jazz format alive.
