I just read something on another Utah radio discussion board which I think is false, so I want to ask about it here. A member of the group claims that the Z Rock format is back in syndication, and will soon be on a Salt Lake station that's going to flip. He claims he read this information on RadioInsight. I'm a regular RadioInsight reader and I haven't seen anything to back up the poster's claims, so I'm wondering if he's just trolling. It's the same individual who claimed a couple of years ago that the license for KXOL 1660 had been bought by a group of investors and was going to be back on the air with 25 KW unlimited, so IMO his credibility is questionable at best. Can anyone truthfully confirm or deny the Z Rock rumor?
Yes it is. I tried to be as tactful as possible with my original post, because I'm pretty sure that several members of the Facebook group also frequent this board. As I suspected, it appears to be another unfounded rumor.
Tactful is good. The truth is that a lot of stuff on social media is garbage. There's some good conversation out there (and I'm sure participants who are here also contribute to the good stuff) but I don't have the time or desire to separate the wheat from the chaff. I don't even bother with Facebook and on Twitter I just read the tweets from a handful of people and never even see anything else. Rarely I take a look at what everyone else sees and am amazed that anyone puts up with that nonsense. For those that want to go through that, go for it. Not me.
