Crawford Broadcasting has moved a four-station cluster and its corporate engineering offices from the downtown Denver area to Aurora, nearby in the southeast metro area.

Stations served are KLZ, KLTT, KLVZ and KLDC, all AM stations. For 17 years the studios were on West 29th Ave. The new location is leased space on South Parker Road.

The job included four control rooms and talk studios, three production rooms, and station and corporate technical offices. Prewiring started in March, and the move took place in the last week or so of July.

"Most of the equipment was too new to replace, so it was brought over from the old facility," according to DOE Cris Alexander, who's also an RW contributor.

Cris Alexander writes, “Note our snappy CBC Engineering golf shirts!” "It includes Wheatstone Bridge Router and Generation 6 control surfaces, RCS NexGen digital media system and Harris Intraplex digital audio transports. New equipment includes Middle Atlantic equipment racks and Trango Apex-11 11 GHz microwave links."

Cris and Amanda Alexander led the project; also working on it were Phyllis Alexander, Keith Peterson, Elizabeth McGuire, Art Reis (CBC-Chicago), Stephen Poole (CBC-Birmingham), Jack Roland, Cliff Mikkelson and Derek Jackson.
