Overland Park, KS-based Bott Radio Network has expanded its Christian Talk Radio service in Memphis, with the addition of a signal at 93.7 FM. The company relocated translator K280FN that originated in Cuba, MO—some 273 miles away—broadcasting from 103.9, to the new dial position and market.
BRN has been serving Memphis and the Mid-South for 33 years via 50,000-watt WCRV (640), which it says is the largest coverage Christian-formatted radio station in the nation, reaching into eight states. In 2013, the company added an FM signal at 100.7 FM also serving the Memphis area, including Germantown and Collierville. The addition of the translator at 93.7 adds strength in Bartlett and Northeast Shelby County.
“Families across Memphis can now hear BRN’s Christian Talk Radio service in the South Metro at 100.7 FM, in the North Metro at the new 93.7 FM, and all across Memphis and the Mid-South at AM 640,” the company said in its announcement of the new frequency.
“We are excited about this opportunity to reach more families across Memphis with God's Word 24 hours a day," said Rich Bott, BRN Chairman and CEO. "This is another step forward to serve families and change lives with Quality Bible Teaching, Christian News and Information with the addition of this new signal." BRN's Regional Manager for Tennessee Todd Payne noted that the added reach will also benefit the stations’ local business sponsors.
Bott Radio Network was founded in 1962, and has 120 radio stations reaching 15 states. BRN can also be heard on iHeartRadio, Amazon Echo, iTunes, TuneIn Radio and Apple TV.
