K-ROCK is shutting down!
some very HOT news off the Howard Stern show this morning, New York City’s long running premiere rock radio station, Krock_1 92.3 KROCK is changing formats and going to TALK radio as of January 3rd!! holy shit! there’s been some speculation, but official word came this morning and most KROCK DJ’s and staff learned the details from Howard Stern’s show today! even K-Rock’s biggest names like Julie Slater are going to be laid off.

K-ROCK has gone through various format changes over the years but this one is shocking. no doubt spurred by Stern’s move to Sirius Radio in January. for people outside the city that are unfamiliar with K-ROCK… it’s been NYC’s #1 rock radio station for most of our life. what a bummer.

Update: Here’s the Press Release
