Local radio station KZJF goes off the air

Local radio station KZJF 104.1 FM went off the air last Friday, according to documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission.

Station owner Cumulus Media in November filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and agreed to a restructuring agreement to reduce its more than $1 billion in debt. As part of the restructuring process, Cumulus agreed to divest KZJF along with stations in Albany, Georgia; Green Bay, Wisconsin; and Toledo, Ohio.

Cumulus discontinued operations at the KZJF on Monday, according to documents filed with the FCC.

In 2013, the station switched from a country radio format to a sports-talk-radio format and had an affiliation with CBS Sports Radio. During that period, KZJF also carried Westwood One programming including NFL broadcasts, the Super Bowl and the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.

In June 2015, KZJF switched its format to classic hits and Cumulus re-branded the station as Z104.1 Jefferson City's Classic Hits.

Because of the change, Cumulus-owned KJMO 97.5 FM will switch from an oldies format and assume KZJF's classic hits format, according to trade publication Radio Insight. KJMO will take over as the Jefferson City affiliate for Kansas City Royals Baseball, according to Radio Insight.
