Religious broadcaster fires up new FM station in Indiana

Religious broadcaster Bott Radio Network, with some 85 stations in 15 states, has added WFCV(FM) in the Ft. Wayne, Ind. market to its offerings, pending FCC approval of purchase of the station from Independence Media.

It joins WFCV(AM), also in Ft. Wayne, which BRN has owned for 30 years.

WFCV(FM) was WNUY, a mostly talk format station. BRN plans a power increase for the station, possibly tripling its power.

Bott Radio Network President and CEO Rich Bott said: “The engineering report shows that we can nearly triple the power of the station. We plan to implement the power increase as soon as possible.”

Rich Bott also serves as chairman of the National Religious Broadcasters association.
