KZTI is a classic hard rock formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Fallon Station, Nevada, serving Reno, Nevada.[2] KZTI is owned and operated by Times-Shamrock Communications.[4]

The station, which had flipped from adult standards on September 14, 2015, originally billed itself as "Z-Rock 105.3" until October 9, 2015, when it changed the moniker to "105.3 Rock Hard" as they can not use the "Z-Rock" branding due to Cumulus Media owning the rights to the name (Cumulus also has stations that compete against the Times-Shamrock outlets in Reno).[5] In 2016 it slightly rebranded as "Z105.3 Rock Hard".

Booster[edit]

In addition to the main station, KZTI is relayed by an FM booster to widen its broadcast area.[6]
