February 2013 / Bott Radio Network Representatives Tour Fort Leonard Wood, February 13th
Bott Radio Network launched a new mid-Missouri signal in January. 90.5 FM, originating out of Dixon, covering the entire Waynesville/Fort Leonard Wood area.
BRN representatives were given a tour of Fort Leonard Wood, during which time they met with chaplains to learn more about the spiritual needs in the community and on post. They also met with base training and processing staff to see how our troops are processed and trained for combat.
