To listeners of Z104 Radio:

At noon today (Wednesday, January 4, 2005), we said good-bye to Z-104 as it takes its place among the great radio stations in Washington's history.

It has been our pleasure to work alongside the professionals at Z-104. We'd like to thank everyone who called Z-104 home.

To the staff, thank you for your tireless energy. To the listeners, thank you for letting us into your lives, and to the advertisers, thank you for your support.

Now, we welcome a new radio station to this dial position. 104.1 and in Frederick 103.9 are now the new homes of Washington's Classical Station, WGMS.

103.5, formerly WGMS, is now the new home of WTOP Radio, which will continue to simulcast on 1500 AM, 820 AM and 107.7 FM.

Saying good-bye to Z-104 doesn't mean saying good-bye to the music. Mix 107.3, DC 101 and Hot 99.5 all play modern music.

Again, we thank you for your support and hope you will join us in welcoming in a new era in Washington radio.
