Ottawa radio station increases reach in northeast Kansas with new FM signal

OTTAWA, Kan. – Brandy Communications, parent company of KOFO Radio-1220 AM, has announced the FCC has granted its request to purchase an FM translator that will allow the station to broadcast on an FM signal. KOFO 103.7 FM is expected to be on the air later this summer.

KOFO co-owners Bob and Liz Reusch, and co-owner and general manager Brad Howard, announced in a joint statement, “The addition of the 103.7 FM signal gives KOFO another avenue to further our mission in becoming the information and entertainment source for east central Kansas. Our listeners will enjoy the increased coverage and quality sound, as well as the ability to listen via their smartphone through the NextRadio app. We are very excited to add the 103.7 FM brand to KOFO.”

The KOFO 103.7 FM signal is expected to be on the air in August 2016, and will go live during a reception held with the Ottawa Area Chamber of Commerce.

The 1220 AM signal will remain in place and both frequencies will simulcast the KOFO format. KOFO 1220 AM originated in Ottawa and has been on the air since 1949. The country music format station focuses on local and national news, weather, local sports coverage, and agricultural programming. For more information, see www.kofo.com.
