OVERLAND PARK, Kan., July 1, 2009 — Beginning July 1st, Bott Radio Network’s Nebraska flagship station at 88.5 FM now broadcasts with ten times the power from one of the tallest radio towers in the state at 1,250 feet high. This combination provides 100,000 watts of effective coverage all across Southeast Nebraska, including Omaha, Lincoln, Beatrice and Nebraska City at 88.5 FM. This powerful, new signal expands the listening area to cover over 600,000 new people with the power of God’s Word.
BRN will continue to broadcast from three repeater signals in the Omaha area to fill in any locations where there may be interference or terrain obstructions to receiving the main 88.5 FM signal. Those repeater signals are at 93.7 FM in Omaha, 92.7 FM in La Vista, and 102.9 FM in Fremont.
Bott Radio Network built 88.5 FM as KLCV—Lincoln’s Christian Voice—in the summer of 1996 and began broadcasting quality Bible teaching, Christian news, and information radio twenty-four hours a day. For thirteen years BRN has faithfully broadcast to Lincoln at 88.5 FM, and when families in Omaha and Southeast Nebraska asked for expansion into their area, Bott Radio Network responded to their needs. Today, 88.5 FM fills the need with one of the most powerful FM radio voices in the region.
BRN Executive Vice President Rich Bott noted, “For nearly 50 years, Bott Radio Network has served families with Quality Bible Teaching and Christian News and Information. We are excited about expanding our coverage in Omaha, Lincoln, and all across Southeast Nebraska. At 88.5 FM, this new powerful signal will help more people to grow in their faith and to know what’s happening in the world around them, from a Biblical perspective.”
Bott Radio Network also serves the state of Nebraska in Columbus at 95.5 FM, in Crete at 100.5 FM, in Dakota City at 1250 AM, in Grand Island at 104.3 FM, in Hastings at 99.9 FM, in Norfolk at 96.3 FM, in York at 99.3 FM, in North Platte at 107.9 FM, in Cozad at 1580 AM, and across Central Nebraska at 104.5 FM with 100,000 watts of power.
With headquarters in Kansas City, Bott Radio Network is recognized as a national leader in Christian broadcasting. For nearly 50 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.
