96.3 KKLZ Has Decided To Go Taylor Swift Free
It was a tough decision, but with the Las Vegas Raiders playing the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, November 26th at Allegiant Stadium, 96.3 KKLZ has decided to go Taylor Swift FREE! Yep, that’s right! The Mike & Carla Morning Show will make the announcement on Monday!
So, starting Monday, KKLZ will pull all Swift music from our rotation, (keeping in mind we don’t play any TS). There will be no mention of her name on the air, nor will she appear on our website! We understand that this is a strong statement to make. But we feel as a local heritage radio station, we have to draw the line somewhere.
KKLZ Is “Taylor Swift” FREE For A Week!
We will not allow an opposing team like the Kansas City Chiefs to come into our town. Play in our stadium against OUR team and have any more leverage than they might already have!
Keep in mind, that we know we run the risk of alienating a portion of our listening audience. We’re sure this will not go over with “Swifties” citywide, but that just a chance we’re willing to take. If this will help our Las Vegas Raiders beat the Chiefs, then we are willing to make the stand that other radio stations are afraid to make!
Please keep in mind that this is nothing personal against the mega-superstar pop icon, but what else can we do. We have no doubt we will gain the support of Raider Nation and the thousands of fans here in Las Vegas.
Understand that this will only be for the week of 11/20 through the 26th. After the game on the following Sunday, KKLZ will return to it’s regularly scheduled programming and include Miss Swift’s music, allow her name to mentioned on the air as well as post stories about her on our website.
Until then Las Vegas, stay strong, Raider up and let’s show the world we mean business! And God Bless America!
