FORKS, WA--(Marketwired - Oct 31, 2014) - Twilight 96.7 has plans to dramatically expand its broadcast footprint starting early in 2015. The FCC recently granted the radio station's owner a construction permit to upgrade the Class A to a Class C3 facility while relocating the KBDB-FM broadcast antenna to Ellis Lookout tower at 731 meters above average sea level.
"Our new signal will fill the communities along the Straight de Juan de Fuca and blanket some of the most attractive tourism regions in two nations, generating tremendous synergy with Twilight 96.7's highly-popular adult contemporary format," said Mark Lamb, President of Forks Broadcasting.
Research shows the adult contemporary music format category delivers a lucrative and active audience whose recent vacation incidence and adventure expenditure levels are far above average. This format popularity combined with Twilight 96.7's increasing regional signal dominance is creating outstanding advertising opportunities for savvy tourism marketers that want to capture the high discretionary spend visitors bring to the region.
Separately, Forks Broadcasting announced the appointment of Kathleen Landa as Regional Tourism Marketing Director to develop Twilight 96.7 programs for area travel, lodging and tourism businesses, including gaming and entertainment attractions.
