KLRC Finds New Home in Historic Downtown Siloam Springs
Siloam Springs, Arkansas (April 5, 2011) — 101.1 KLRC, a ministry of John Brown University, is moving to a new home in historic downtown Siloam Springs. The facility, located at 110 North Broadway, will be purchased to meet the growing need for additional offices, studios and parking and is a convenient location for listeners to visit. Currently KLRC is operated out of a building located on the west side of the main JBU campus in Siloam Springs.
“We’re so excited about becoming a part of the downtown Siloam Springs community,” said Sean Sawatzky, KLRC General Manager. “We’ll be setting up our main studio so it’s visible from Broadway Street. We’re hoping to give the people of Siloam Springs yet another reason to spend time downtown.”
This will be the third location the station has occupied in its history. When the station launched in 1984, it was located on the first floor of the Learning Resource Center near the center of campus. As the need for space became an issue, the station moved to its current location in 2002. Sawatzky said the station will move to its downtown location in early summer.
“This opportunity is a win-win for KLRC and Siloam Springs,” said Kim Hadley, vice president for finance and administration. “We see this as our chance to give KLRC the space they need while expanding our connection with the community.”
