Kansas City-based Bott Radio Network (BRN) is expanding its “Christian Talk Radio” with the launch of two new stations—KASD (90.3) Rapid City, SD and KAOW (88.9) Fort Smith, AR. With the new signals the “Christian Talk Radio” network grows to 115 stations broadcasting to 15 states with a reach of over 60 million people.
Bott closed on the purchase of both stations from American Family Association in May.
BRN has had a presence in Southeastern South Dakota for nearly ten years and with the addition of KASD the company now extends its reach to the western side of the state. The company has a number of stations in Arkansas and by adding KAOW to its portfolio it now covers the northwestern portion of the state from Fayetteville to Fort Smith. Bott plans to increase the power of both stations.
“We are excited about the launch of these new FM stations and expanding our coverage in Rapid City, South Dakota and Fort Smith, Arkansas,” chairman and CEO Rich Bott remarked. “This is a wonderful step forward to strengthen families and change lives with God’s word through Bott Radio Network’s Quality Bible Teaching, Christian News and Information programming.”
