Kansas Citians traveling to the Ozarks have a new option to listen to their favorite Bible teachers. Overland Park-based Bott Radio Network has increased the power of 88.9 FM in Fort Smith, Ark., from 1,400 to watts to 20,000 watts.
“We are excited about this opportunity to reach more families across Fort Smith and the River Valley with God’s Word, 24 hours a day,” said Rich Bott, chairman and CEO. “This tremendous power increase at 88.9 FM is another step forward to serve families and change lives with quality Bible teaching, Christian news and Information.”
Bott Radio Network began serving families in northwest Arkansas in Fayetteville at 89.3 FM. Today, it also serves Arkansas families with signals in Eureka Springs at 95.3 FM, Jonesboro at 91.1 FM, Walnut Ridge at 88.9 FM and West Memphis at 90.5 FM.
