Major FM Expansion Across Northeast Indiana

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., June 21, 2011 – Bott Radio Network (BRN) announces a powerful new FM expansion of its Christian Talk Radio service to Fort Wayne and Northeast Indiana with the addition of 100.1 FM. Formerly WNUY, the new station will be known as WFCV-FM, a service of Bott Radio Network.

Bott Radio Network began broadcasting in the Fort Wayne area with the launch of WFCV 1090 AM back in 1980. Now, more than 30 years later, BRN is building upon their legacy of service in Northeast Indiana with the addition of WFCV 100.1FM.

A special dedication broadcast is planned for noon on Friday, June 24 to mark the moment when this quality, full-power, 24/7 FM station becomes part of Bott Radio Network. Together with BRN’s powerful station at AM 1090, this new FM signal will broadcast Quality Bible Teaching as well as Christian News and Information 24 hours a day to families in Fort Wayne and all across Northeast Indiana.
