COMMUNITY RADIO Classic Country KBTN/JOPLIN, MO is still ‘streaming’ their ‘Country Legends,’ format this morning, after having their transmitter destroyed in the storms and tornadoes that devastated parts of OKLAHOMA and MISSOURI over the weekend.
OM JEFF ALLEN told ALL ACCESS that thankfully, no station personnel were injured when the storm hit the transmitter building at approximately 6p (CT) on SATURDAY (05/10).
ALLEN said that he’s hoping that the station will be back on the air by tomorrow (5/13) and work is underway to secure a new transmitter. You can hear the station’s stream at www.kbtn.com.
