OVERLAND PARK, Kan., March 9th, 2007 — Today, Friday, March 9th, Bott Radio Network (BRN) began broadcasting from a brand new state-of-the- art 50,000 watt transmitter at AM 1160. At 50,000 watts of power, AM 1160 is one of the most powerful radio stations in the nation, and with this new state-of-the-art 50,000 watt transmitter, the signal is now clearer, louder and stronger than ever, covering all of Middle Tennessee and parts of Kentucky with BRN’s format of Quality Bible Teaching, Christian News and Information.
Bott Radio Network acquired WCRT AM 1160 in January 2006. This 24 hour signal in Nashville added to Bott Radio Network’s existing 50,000 watt Memphis coverage over WCRV AM 640. With these two major 50,000 watt Super-Stations in Memphis and Nashville, Bott Radio Network now reaches a major portion of the population of Tennessee with its format of Quality Bible Teaching, Christian News and Information.
Bott Radio Network considers Nashville one of the ten most influential evangelical markets in the country, according to BRN Executive Vice President Rich Bott. “We are pleased to make AM 1160’s powerful signal even stronger with the addition of this new state-of-the-art 50,000 watt transmitter,” says Bott.
With headquarters in Kansas City, Bott Radio Network is recognized as a national leader in Christian broadcasting. “For forty-five years, Bott Radio Network has featured America’s finest Bible teachers and Christian news and information programs to help people grow in the Lord and apply their faith in their daily lives,” Bott shares, “Bott Radio Network stretches across the United States from California to Tennessee, with a focus on the heart of America.”
BRN features some of the nation’s most recognizable Christian and conservative talk show personalities including Dr. James Dobson of Focus On The Family—one of the top three radio programs in the nation; Dr. Richard Land of For Faith & Family—a broadcast that originates from the Southern Baptist headquarters in Nashville, TN; attorney and judicial advocate Jay Sekulow of Jay Sekulow Live from Washington D.C. BRN also features Adrian Roger’s broadcast, Love Worth Finding, from Memphis, along with broadcasts by Rev. Billy Graham, Chuck Swindoll, June Hunt, Charles Stanley and many other national Christian leaders. Time magazine recognized several of BRN’s talk show hosts as among the nation’s top 25 most influential evangelicals.
BRN Founder and President Dick Bott said: “For years, Bott Radio Network has served families with Quality Bible Teaching and Christian News and Information. We are excited about this new state-of-the-art 50,000 watt transmitter expanding our signal in Nashville at WCRT AM 1160—one of the strongest radio signals across Middle Tennessee. This new, stronger signal will help even more people grow in their faith and know what’s happening in the world around them with a Biblical worldview.”
