History

KZZU was previously KREM-FM, an Adult Album Alternative station. In 1984, KREM-FM changed call letters and switched to a Top 40 format, enjoying relative success for two decades. During this time the station was known as "93 Zoo FM". Part of the station's popularity stemmed from the "Breakfast Boys", Dave Sposito and Ken Hopkins, who, in their morning show, almost exclusively discussed pop culture items.

In response to their primary competitor, Spokane's increasingly popular 103.1 KCDA, which earned its success through a combination of contemporary and retro hits, KZZU's shifted to its current format on October 17, 2005 and offers a range of music that includes an Adult oriented Hip-Hop and Pop selection. Their targeted audience are individuals from 18 to 49 years of age.

With the new format, the Breakfast Boys were reunited with Molly Allen, discarding the "The Breakfast Boys" monicker. Dave, Ken, Molly and producer Paul "Patch" Adams currently host the station's morning show, which runs from 6 to 10am.

Trivia

In 2005 KZZU became the only Top 40 outlet of its kind in the United States to have an all-female airstaff.

It is one of seven local Spokane FM radio stations heard across Canada to subscribers of the Star Choice satellite TV service. [http://www.starchoice.com/english/documents/channel_listing_09_22_08_e.pdf]
