Moving on with radio

There comes a time in everyone's life, personal and professional, when a move may prove to be just what the doctor ordered. We certainly hope so, because there's a move ahead and we hope you'll come along for the ride.
For the past 18 months, we've broadcast our little political talk show on SuperTalk1340, KRMD. It's been fun and the experience we've gained has been beneficial. Now, we have an opportunity to expand the reach of our show by a multiple of many.
Beginning Monday, April 2, we will be broadcasting from our almost hometown radio station. Our show will be simulcast (for those of you in Leton, that means both at once) on KASO AM 1240 and KBEF FM 104.5 in Minden. Staffers at the station also are making steps toward getting the show on streaming audio for those of you who prefer the web. We will still be broadcasting from 6 until 7 p.m., so that stays the same.
The biggest difference is the reach of the stations. The AM station will cover most of Webster Parish and will take in Haughton to the west and almost to Homer in the east. It's the FM station which has us excited. KBEF 104.5 will give us coverage of just about all of Caddo Parish (some hilly areas in the north will find a little static, as will some of the downtown area of Shreveport), but we've found the signal to be strong in all of Bossier, Webster, Claiborne, Bienville and Red River parishes. Signal reach also covers danged near all of DeSoto along with large portions of Lincoln, Jackson and Natchitoches. Listeners in Farmerville, Ruston, Jonesboro, Natchitoches and even (on good days) Alexandria have answered inquiries about hearing the station.
To say our reach will increase dramatically is an understatement. We are really looking forward to the move, but we hate to leave the many friends we've made at SuperTalk. With no exceptions, everyone there has made us feel welcome. It's not their fault that the signal has limited reach, and we need that additional listenership for many reasons.
Please continue to listen, and if you've been caught in the static, come hear what you've been missing.
By the will still be welcome as we now extend our conversation on politics to a regional audience.
Look forward to you hearing us, and to us hearing from you.

Pat- After hearing Willie Lohman on the show last night, I can't believe that with all of the high priced talent he has helping him, he expects to ride hugo Chavez to the Mansion. I hope the something for nothing thinking is behind us. Did he rip his tie off and sweat as he spouted the party line over and over? There aren't many around who remember a chicken in every pot. I am no longer woried about him as a candidate, I think his time is past.

Congrats on your new show location Pat. I do not hear you every night but do enjoy when I am in the car and can catch the show. Always a hard decision but reaching a larger audience with your wisdom is a great choice.

Pat: Listen to your show; read your columns. Wish Forum was still running them, but I keep up through Lou's Fax-Net Update. Your show is informative and entertaining. Keep up the good work. I look forward to listening to you on your new station.

The Pat Culverhouse Show is without a doubt the best political talk show in Louisiana. I look forward to him reaching a wider audience at his new digs.
