Bryan Broadcasting is currently in the building stages of a new 400 foot tower to allow Maverick to extend coverage farther North and South of Bryan/College Station.
“Randal Tower Services began stacking the twenty 20 foot sections of steel on Wednesday, and we expect to be doing equipment testing for the next two to three weeks,” General Manager Ben Downs said.
“Our original plan for our Maverick country music format was to build a much taller tower and operate it with a more powerful transmitter to get farther distances than it currently does. Our best estimate to do the full power station was about a year and we were ready to go with music as well as Drake and Mel. So we purchased the metro signal station at 102.7 to get things rolling as soon as possible and the response has been great. We think everyone is going to be very happy with the new coverage area; especially toward the north of Brazos County, Robertson, and Madison Counties,” Downs said.
So what about the 102.7 frequency? Downs adds that you will see a brand new radio station debuting there in the next few months.
