Country’s Gone & Dees “Gets Movin” To Mornings At 93.9 LA
Emmis has ditched Country at KZLA Los Angeles in favor of Rhythmic Pop Contemporary as Movin 93.9. Additionally, legendary LA personality Rick Dees will join the station in mornings.

Movin 93.9 will feature artists including Beyonce, Gwen Stefani, Usher, Jennifer Lopez, Black Eyed Peas, Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Gnarls Barkley. Movin 93.9’s slogan is: “The Mix That Makes You Move.”

“We’re overjoyed that Rick Dees will be joining Emmis Communications and Movin 93.9,” said Jimmy Steal, Emmis Communications VP of Programming. “Rick’s passion for Los Angeles’ morning radio is legendary and his live & local show is a perfect fit for Movin 93.9. We can’t wait for him to start! He’s the perfect compliment to this exciting new format.”

“Emmis is the perfect fit,” said Rick Dees. “I’ve been presented with many opportunities, and the new Movin 93.9 gets me excited like I’ve never been before! We will have an All-Star team ready to deliver a great morning show for Southern California.”

Emmis Radio Division Val Maki said, “This is one of the most exciting opportunities we’ve seen in any radio market. The potential audience has told us that they want something new and fun. The combination of this music and Rick Dees make this the perfect answer to the needs of the marketplace. We are privileged to launch this station and I applaud the entire team.”

KZLA’s Country format will continue to be available via Internet streaming as well as on Movin 93.9’s HD Radio side channel.
