OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Oct. 6, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Bott Radio Network (BRN) is pleased to announce a big FM power increase in Nashville at 89.1 FM, now broadcasting with fifteen times more power! This power increase to 22,000 watts makes 89.1 FM the most powerful Christian-formatted FM station in Nashville and the only one dedicated to Christian teaching and talk programming 24/7.
In addition to this new, more powerful signal at 89.1 FM in Nashville, BRN serves Middle Tennessee with a full power station at 91.5 FM in Dickson as well as FM signals at 99.5 FM in Clarksville, 93.9 FM in Gallatin and 101.9 FM in Lebanon. Plus, BRN serves all of Middle Tennessee on the AM dial with 50,000 watts of power at superstation 1160 AM in Nashville.
In February of 2011, BRN purchased 89.1 FM from Trevecca Nazarene University and quickly applied for this major power increase from the Federal Communications Commission. On October 6, this power increase became a reality, adding thousands of new families to the listening area. With a brand new transmitter, antenna and related equipment, 89.1 FM now reaches from Nashville to Murfreesboro, Brentwood, Franklin, and everywhere in between.
Bott Radio Network began serving Tennessee 25 years ago in Memphis with 50,000 watts at 640 AM. This BRN station in Memphis serves the Mid-South with the largest coverage of any Christian-formatted radio station in the United States. In 2006, BRN began serving Nashville and Middle Tennessee with 50,000 watts at 1160 AM. Last February, BRN launched 5 new FM signals in Nashville and Middle Tennessee, featuring BRN’s format of quality Bible Teaching, Christian News and information twenty-four hours a day.
BRN President & CEO, 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 FM coverage in Nashville and Middle Tennessee to reach more people with the power of God's Word. At 89.1 FM, this new, more powerful signal will help more people grow in their faith and know what’s happening in the world around them, from a Biblical perspective."
