Siloam Springs, Ark. (September 29, 2009) - Residents of Springdale, Johnson, Bethel Heights, and Lowell can now hear KLRC louder, cleaner, and stronger than ever before. In September, KLRC signed on its second translator at 103.5FM in Springdale.
“While our main signal at 101.1FM already reaches these areas, we’ve had a desire for a long time to improve our signal in this area,” said KLRC General Manager Sean Sawatzky. “One of the benefits of the new translator is that listeners can now tune in at work or at home.”
Before signing on the new translator, listeners were primarily only able to listen using car radios. KLRC’s Springdale translator marks the second enhancement to the station’s signal in the last four years. In February 2005, KLRC began broadcasting from its first translator at 99.1 FM in Bentonville.
KLRC Program Director Mark Michaels says the Bentonville translator has exceeded station expectations in many ways. “We’re excited to see how God uses the new signal in Springdale. Ultimately, we simply want to share hope with even more people.”
Sawatzky says KLRC is continually exploring options for enhancing its signal in Northwest Arkansas. “There are definitely other communities we’d like to serve better. We’ll continue to do everything possible to improve our signal.”
KLRC’s main studios remain on the campus of John Brown University in Siloam Springs.
