KRKO 1380 broadcasting power increases tenfold
KRKO’s broadcasting power is set to increase tenfold on Monday, allowing the Everett-based radio station to expand its market with a new sports programing lineup. Four radio towers built last year in the Snohomish River Valley are set to start broadcasting Monday, 23rd of February, said Andy Skotdal, whose family owns KRKO-AM 1380. That’s expected to boost the station’s broadcasting power from 5,000 watts to 50,000 watts at night and to 34,000 watts during the day. KRKO has permission from the Federal Communications Commission to broadcast the new signal during a testing period, Skotdal said. It has yet to receive final licensing.
