McKinney’s No. 1 news website, TownSquareBuzz.com, and “your hometown radio station” 97.5 KLAK-FM have joined forces to give residents of Collin County and beyond a powerhouse combination of local news and entertainment information.
TSB will provide KLAK with local news to broadcast during the station’s weekday a.m. drive with DJ Allen Freemont. Meanwhile, listeners will soon be able to access the KLAK live stream directly from TSB.
TSB will also feature community promotions and light-hearted videos produced by KLAK on its website, free and accessible to the general public.
TSB remains committed to its premium content subscription program which requires the public to pay a nominal fee to access content written by TSB reporters. KLAK and TSB will give away the TSB content subscriptions to loyal listeners and readers in the coming months.
“For some time now I have watched TSB cover local news and they have done an impressive job,” said Hank McMonigle, general manager of 97.5 KLAK-FM. “Their news is the product of thorough research, fairness and journalistic best practices. I’m looking forward to sharing their content with our listeners and in the process extending our radio and online brand with their thousands of loyal readers.”
“It is only fitting the second-best place to live in America (CNN/Money Magazine 2012) have its own radio station and news outlet,” said Angie Bado, owner and publisher of TSB. “It makes sense to come together with KLAK to strengthen our brands and better serve our customers.”
