Call Letter History-AM: KDOG, KEZY, KPZE
Call Letter History-FM:

KEZY was a legendary station in the Los Angeles market. The AM had dozens of announcers that have gone on to great fame and success. In 1985, the AM needed to be moved, because the owners (Anaheim Broadcasting) hadn't bought the land under the transmitter site and the landowners sold the land for a light industrial center. Property had been purchased north of Brea in an old oil field. My main project in my time there was to build the new 5-tower transmitter site. The call letters for the AM during my time were KPZE.

Doing his show live at "Lawnfrontation", a listener party on the lawn in front of the station. 2 to 3,000 listeners attended and received prizes and free Del Taco food.

KEZY-FM continued the KEZY tradition playing the top hits of the day. Program Director Jeff Salgo conducted callout research with a room of about 10 phones. His target listener was on who either listened to KEZY and KIIS-FM or KEZY and KLOS. The produced a unique and disparate music mix that produced limited success.
