Programming[edit]

Former branding (2008-2011)

As of November 12, 2011, KFSZ broadcasts a contemporary hit radio music format branded as "Hits 106" to the greater Flagstaff, Arizona, area.[1][2] Before that date, it aired a hot adult contemporary music format branded as "My 106.1" and "Magic 106.1".

History[edit]

This station received its original construction permit for a new FM station broadcasting at 106.1 MHz from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on February 23, 2005.[3] The new station was assigned the "KFSZ" call sign by the FCC on March 17, 2006.[4]

Nearly four years after the original construction permit was granted, KFSZ received its license to cover from the FCC on February 13, 2009.[5]

Ownership[edit]

In February 2008, LKCM Radio Group, LP (Kevin Prigel, VP/secretary) announced an agreement to sell KFSZ, then still under construction, to OD Broadcasting, LLC (Michael O'Donnell, president) for a reported $2.35 million in cash.[6][7][8] The FCC approved the deal on April 18, 2008, but as of November 12, 2011 the transaction was not consummated.[9] Effective July 31, 2015, KFSZ was sold by LKCM Radio Group to Roger and Nancy Anderson's Southwest Media, Inc., at a purchase price of $491,400.
