Signal Media of Arkansas has announced the launch of Buz2 on KHLR 106.7 FM, pending a call letter change to KBZU-FM, licensed to Benton, AR.
The station will serve as a complement to the company’s long-standing sports powerhouse KABZ 103.7 The Buzz. Buz2 will offer ESPN national programming through the day and evening hours with local sports broadcasts and programming mixed in, primarily in the evenings and on weekends.
The new format will begin the morning of Monday, January 4.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer central Arkansas sports fans another great option for sports information, breaking news, opinion and play-by-play,” said Justin Acri, General Manager of 106.7 Buz2 and 103.7 The Buzz. “This also gives us another signal on which to air locally produced sports shows and game broadcasts to entertain our listeners.”
