KWIZ radio, which had until today to solve interference problems caused by its antenna, has successfully addressed the complaints of residents and will continue to broadcast from a hillside in Orange.
In August, the City Council ordered the station to deal with the complaints or risk losing the conditional use permit that allowed it to broadcast from the western slope of Crawford Hills.
KWIZ, operated by Liberman Broadcasting, has broadcast adult contemporary music for years through the television sets, tape decks and telephones of area residents.
The station spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to resolve problems at 73 homes, according to station officials. The company hired engineers and other personnel to make more than 100 house calls to community members.
Shirley Grindle, one of the residents who helped bring the problem to the council’s attention, congratulated KWIZ for “taking the bull by the horns” and addressing the complaints.
