KLZR 105.9 switches formats, dropping Jayhawks?

Once one of the coolest stations in Kansas City, broadcasting indie rock and named by Rolling Stone as one of the 10 stations in the nation that didn’t suck, Lawrence’s KLZR is now known as KISS-FM. It dropped its adult contemporary format Jan. 20 with an day of Lady Gaga tunes. It’s now a top 40 station.

No word yet on whether it will discontinue its broadcasts of KU football and basketball games. Comments on the Lawrence Journal-World’s website indicate KLZR did not broadcast Saturday’s basketball game.

UPDATE: It appears there are no plans to drop KU games from 105.9, according to the Journal-World.

(Sidebar: Why are so many stations called KISS-FM? Does that make people want to listen to it?)
