Signal done and on

The signal is up and you should notice a major difference. In Cordova, I picked up the Cardinals game, in my house, @ 7:40 at night, on a crappy radio. Thanks to those of you that have listened to the station and been patient. I have tried to keep you updated along the way the best I could, and now its a question that hopefully I will not have to answer a billion times a week. Again, thank you for listening.

Here is the release...

730 AM ESPN Radio Boosts Signal Strength

Memphis, TN - 730 ESPN Radio can now be heard all over the Mid-South. The station has completed a signal upgrade and is now transmitting from four new towers located in West Memphis, AR.
Previously, Cardinals baseball fans had expressed some frustration regarding their ability to hear the games as well as the Chris Vernon show in areas of Germantown and Collierville. The station had to await FCC approval, but that has now been received and the station began running at about four-times its previous strength as of Friday afternoon.
“It’s simply another step towards our goal of becoming the primary choice for fans of sports and entertaining talk,” said program director Jon Madani. “We will continue to listen to our fans and try to deliver for them whenever possible.”
730 ESPN Radio is currently the home of St. Louis Cardinals baseball, the af2 defending champion Memphis Xplorers and ESPN network programming like the Dan Patrick Show, Colin Cowherd and Mike and Mike in the Morning.
“Everyone loves ESPN Radio, says station manager Kevin Fry. “Now everyone can hear ESPN Radio.”
