SR BROADCASTING Sports KRKO-A (NORTHSOUND 1380)/EVERETT, WA gets FCC approval for its application to go from 5,000 watts full-time to 34,000 watts days and 50,000 watts nights. KRKO, one of eight remaining locally-owned stations in the SEATTLE-TACOMA area, will start testing the new signal in the FALL.
"This is a significant milestone in the re-emergence of the City of EVERETT," said Pres./GM ANDY SKOTDAL. "Every major commercial broadcast station in the region abandoned their home cities and took their studios to SEATTLE years ago. We’ve worked tirelessly to grow this local radio station in EVERETT."
