Local radio station KBCQ is now broadcasting headline news from the Roswell Daily Record five times daily.
The content of the fast-paced 60-second newscast comes directly from the newsroom of the Daily Record, making it the most local and up-to-date broadcast news source in Chaves County.
“The Roswell Daily Record is pleased to partner [auth] with KBCQ to give a taste of what is in or will be in the newspaper,” said Charles Fischer, publisher of the Daily Record.
Listeners can now get information about the latest news and events as they happen, then read the full stories in the Record the following day.
“KBCQ is excited and honored to have this working relation with Roswell’s legendary newspaper,” said John Sebastian, vice president of operations for the radio station. “The Roswell Daily Record is really the only true newsgathering source in the area so this is a real benefit to our listeners.”
Simulcast on 92.5 FM and 1230 AM, KBCQ is billed as a “greatest hits” radio station, playing the best music from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Recent surveys show it to be the fastest-growing radio station in Roswell and tops in workplace listening.
KBCQ is owned and operated by Majestic Communications, Roswell’s only locally owned radio company.
