K-Brite (KBRT), on the dial at 740 AM, plans to leave its transmitter site on Catalina Island and to move to a new transmitter site in Anaheim in the Santa Ana Mountains. KBRT, one of Avalon's few AM transmitters, is leaving the island due to concerns over the Catalina Fire, which occured a few months back. The station is known for its Christian programming and does not broadcast at night. 

According to the station's website, "The founder of the Crawford Broadcasting Company was Dr. Percy B. Crawford. He was a broadcast visionary. An evangelist, Christian educator and businessman, he realized early on the value of radio and television as a means to promote the Gospel and to reach people."

    OOPS!

    "....KBRT, one of Avalon's few AM transmitters...."

    Where did you come up with that idea?

    KBRT is the ONLY AM station with a Catalina transmitter. (There is a local, low-power public FM station.
