In the eternal battle between jazz and news in public radio, we have lost an
hour in Arizona.

Because of decreasing Arbitron numbers and focus group studies that show
core listeners prefer news, KJZZ in Phoenix has decided to move jazz back to
8pm from 7pm.   Instead a one hour news magazine "The World" will be airing
at 7pm.  Just another brick in the wall.

Jazz radio is fighting for it's life around the country, especially on
npr/jazz stations.
