The SKOTDAL family, owners of Sports KRKO-A (NORTH SOPUND 1380)/EVERETT, WA, are seeking permission for two additional new towers to allow it to build a new AM station for which it has received FCC approval.
The EVERETT HERALD reports that the owners have applied for county and federal approval for the two 199 foot towers to transmit the new station at 1520 AM but that hearings next week are expected to bring opposition from local residents and environmentalists who previously opposed KRKO's new four tower array. The new station will run 20,000 watts daytime and 50,000 watts at night.
