KZION Moves Towards Traditional Radio

ST. GEORGE, UTAH -- When iM Networks, the leading provider of Internet tuning solutions, and Royal Philips Electronics, one of the world's biggest electronics companies, got together, they revolutionized two of the most common technologies available in households throughout the Western world. And KZION is a part of it all.

The Philips FW-i1000 Internet Radio Mini Shelf System takes streaming audio from Internet radio stations and MP3 audio streams and puts them on a "traditional" radio right beside the FM and AM bands.

The FW-100 allows users to plug-in to their existing Internet connection and with the push of a button automatically connect to their favourite radio station, or choose from the thousands of other stations covering 25 different genres.

"This was definitely a pleasant surprise," said John Hesch, station manger at KZION. "This was something we hadn't even expected. To top it all off by seeing us listed as one of the nine best stations in iM's Religious collection is that much more exciting."

Kim Siever, KZION's Public Relations Manager, is amazed at the growth KZION has experienced in just over a year.

"To think that last summer KZION was not much more than four downloads on and to see where we have come now is absolutely mind-boggling. We have gone from a never-heard-of online radio station playing some rarely-heard-of musicians to the most popular online independent LDS radio station playing nearly every LDS artist out there."

"The partnerships we've made are one of the best parts of running this station," adds Hesch. "Not only have we made great working partnerships with dozens of artists and major recording labels, but the partnerships we've established with KNAK and iM are so vital in the explosive growth we've experienced."
