Bonneville International is taking over management of Jazz Communications Sports “The Zone Sports Network” 1280 KZNS Salt Lake City/97.5 KZNS-FM Coalville UT.
As part of the deal, Bonneville will simulcast select Utah Jazz games from KZNS/KZNS-FM on News/Talk 1160 KSL/102.7 KSL-FM. The Sports simulcast joins a Bonneville Salt Lake City cluster that also includes AC “FM 100” KSFI, Classic Rock “103.5 The Arrow” KRSP and KSL-TV.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that KZNS afternoon co-host Gordon Monson and a few producers have been let go. Monson had been with KZNS since its launch in 2001.
New Utah Jazz owner Ryan Smith acquired the stations from former owner Larry H Miller Communications in April for $100.
