KZRX (92.1 FM), known as "Z92", is a radio station broadcasting a mainstream rock format serving Dickinson, North Dakota. The station is currently owned by Clear Channel Communications.

History

KZRX signed on in 1998, after Roberts Radio bought adult contemporary station KRRB from Roughrider Broadcasting. KZRX went under a short lived moniker, aliasing themselves as "92.1 The Point"; and later as "Z92", starting back in the spring of 2001. The station ran a Hot AC format that was syndicated through by Jones Radio Networks. For the first time since the frequency's original launch, back in 1983 (as KRRB), KZRX broadcasted 24 hours a day, and featured its first local on-air program during the morning hours of Monday-Friday; 5 AM-10 AM.

For a period of little more than two years, KZRX also had The Party Zone, a show that was broadcasted every Tuesday night, from 9 PM-11 PM, by remote from the old Borrowed Bucks Roadhouse. The show leaned to a more mainstream rock format, which also featured popular rap and dance music. The popularity of the rock that was played on The Party Zone had KZRX also set an hour long block aside every morning, during Morning-Friday, from 9 AM-10 AM. This show was known as "The Power Hour", which ran an Active Rock format during the time frame of 1999-2001, and then running on a more mainstream format until 2002, playing more classic rock. The Power Hour was beloved by Dickinson's listeners for two reasons. One, Dickinson never had a radio station set on the FM dial that played rock; and during the early beginnings of the program's run, the music was not selected by a playlist, but actually by the DJ and its listeners. A typical set for the hour would include popular songs from bands such as: Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Kid Rock, Blue Öyster Cult, Kittie, SlipKnot, Stone Temple Pilots, Aerosmith, and Godsmack. With such favor by request, KZRX started leaning more towards the Mainstream Rock format whenever it would broadcast remotely around the city. And this wasn't by intention. KZRX responded to every call-in request it received during their local stunts. It is probably assumed that because of the notorious popularity The Power Hour received during its run, is the reason why KZRX flipped its format from Hot AC to Classic Rock in early 2002.

In February, 2002, KZRX went under the fad logo Z92, with a slogan phrase "Rockin' the Western Edge". Still running with the satellite programming offered by Jones Radio Networks, Z92 syndicated "Your Classic Rock Station", which would cover most of the station's programming hours, except for the weekday morning show that ran from 5 AM- 10 AM. KZRX would still stunt more of the Mainstream Rock format during its local broadcasts in the mornings, and would later switch to it in 2003. Also, KZRX had now supported an afternoon DJ, and did away with the satellite program format syndications, by running with an automated playlist that covers the rest of the days broadcast.

Currently the highlight of the station is the Saturday Night Cap which features Lew McCoy, Dashing Darcy Rivers and the incorrigable, boisterous, and multi-talented Chris McCade.
