AM 1400 / FM 92.5 KCOW is celebrating 70 years of broadcast service to Box Butte County throughout 2019, and we’ll be sharing 70th anniversary content weekly here on Panhandle Post.
KCOW, which signed on February 15, 1949, was created by the Sandhills Broadcasting Corporation, a small group of panhandle businessmen. In 1966 the station was sold to KLOE, Inc. which later became Eagle Communications.
In the weeks to come we’ll be sharing historical photos, the complete story of KCOW’s birth, rare audio and more. KCOW, like all of our Eagle radio stations in Alliance and Chadron, owes its success to the support of our loyal listeners and advertisers.
Everyone is invited to join the online and on-air celebration of KCOW’s 70th anniversary!
