KFIN to be New Flagship Station for Red Wolf Football Broadcasts

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Arkansas State University athletic department and East Arkansas Broadcasters (EAB) announced this morning that KFIN, 107.9-FM, located in Jonesboro, will become the new flagship station for the Arkansas State Radio Network's (ASRN) broadcasts of ASU Red Wolf football.

KFIN's 100,000-watt signal reaches into western Tennessee, southeast Missouri and most of northeast and north-central Arkansas, giving more ASU fans the opportunity to follow the Red Wolves during the upcoming season.  Today's announcement comes one year after ASU made the move from 103.9 Earl-FM to the 34,000-watt 95.9 FM (The Wolf), both also part of the East Arkansas Broadcasters group.

The move also puts ASU football broadcasts back on a 100,000-watt station for only the second time in school history and the first time since games were aired on ASU's campus station, KASU. 

"Our goal is to use KFIN as the flagship station of the Arkansas State Radio Network in order to expose ASU athletics to as many people as possible," said Bobby Caldwell, owner and CEO of East Arkansas Broadcasters. "KFIN is one of just three 100,000-watt stations in northeast Arkansas and has a signal that goes into Tennessee, Missouri and a large portion of Arkansas."

EAB will release a full list of network affiliates for Red Wolf football at a later date.
