YATES COMMUNICATIONS received approval this week from the FCC to purchase radio station KAND-A/CORSICANA, TX and announced that they will use the platform to create the nation's first true "green" radio station.
"We've produced weekend syndicated earth-friendly radio content for some time. The programming ran locally in TEXAS' largest cities, including DALLAS/FORT WORTH and HOUSTON/GALVESTON," says YATES Pres. DAVID YATES. "We wanted to expand our reach, but were not able find a station interested in weekday programming that encourages listeners to live a more healthy life, save money, and save the planet. We decided to do it on our own."
TEXAS Radio Hall of Fame inductee KEVIN MCCARTHY will be hosting 'THE KEVIN MCCARTHY SHOW ON GREEN RADIO' from 10a-Noon, weekdays. "In Boy Scouts they taught us to always leave the campsite in better condition than we found it. I'm really excited about doing this new form of 'radio' with a great group of talented people who believe in working to make the world a better place and having fun doing it!" exclaimed MCCARTHY.
