Through the Years
Following Mid Nebraska Broadcasting, LLC’s (Mark Jensen) purchase,
Jensen took the station off the air to work on facility upgrades. This included changing the frequency from 92.1 to 92.3.
A 750-foot tower was erected and the station was upgraded to a Class C1 100,000 watt facility, all part of the station’s move to 92.3.
On June 5, 2014, Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman flipped the switch that put the station back on the air following months of facility upgrades and planning. Owner Mark Jensen and GM Sid Fessler hosted the event that launched “K-BEAR Country 92.3” in its Hot Country format. Guests included NBA President Emeritus Marty Riemenschneider and NBA President/Executive Director Jim Timm.
