"Dear Smooth Jazz 104.3 Listener.
We are sad to announce that Smooth Jazz will no longer be available on the 104.3FM frequency. Due to declining audience ratings over the past couple years combined with a decline in advertising support from our clients, we had no choice but to make the difficult decision to remove the Smooth Jazz format from the 104.3 frequency.
The staff of Smooth Jazz 104.3 would like to thank you for your support over these past 8 years. As many of you know, Smooth Jazz has been on an FM station in Denver for nearly 20 years as prior to Smooth Jazz 104.3 coming on the air, KHIH better remembered at K-HIGH programmed Smooth Jazz for many years before changing format itself.
Knowing how much you enjoy Smooth Jazz, we will continue to make the station available for you to hear on our website- SmoothJazzDenver.com. In addition, we are pleased to announce Smooth Jazz Denver will now be heard on an HD Radio channel. Just purchase an HD capable radio and you will be able to listen to your favorite Smooth Jazz artists for free as always. Smooth Jazz Denver will be heard on HD FM 98.5-2 a multicast channel of KYGO our sister station.
FM HD radios are capable of picking up many more radio stations than the ones on a regular FM radio. When you purchase an HD capable radio, you will see how to hear all of these new radio stations for free. In Denver, you can purchase an HD capable radio at Circuit City, Best Buy, and Ultimate Electronics along with Car Toys. You can have HD radio in your car, at home and office by purchasing a new HD radio. That way, you will continue to hear Smooth Jazz Denver on your radio.

I HIGHLY suggest leaving a comment or ten, letting them know how much of a vacuum that this format change has left in Denver, or at least thanking them for sticking with it when times have become tough for jazz demographics.
I have already heard feedback, the 'shock waves' from fans on the scene, saying that "their favorite station is gone" and that they "don't want to pay for satellite" to hear the latest smooth cuts. I'll be sure to let my friends and family know that at least the web and HD options are still available ...
