Wendlee Broadcasting Builds Digital Platforms

Wendlee Broadcasting added several new features to our digital platforms in order to accommodate the busy lives of our listeners. First, we’ve begun putting our news online. Whether you missed the details of a particular story, need more information, or wish to check the status of a story, you can log on to our Local News page.

We also post the weather forecast daily on our Weather page. This page can also be monitored during severe thunderstorms for information.

The morning show on News/Talk 102.3 KXYL (1240 AM) always enlightens with information and entertainment. If you found a particular segment interesting, and wish to go back and listen again, or if you want more information on a guest, you can now access that information  on the KXYL page.

Of course, all of this information is available at your fingertips if you download the free apps for The Breeze and News/Talk 102.3 KXYL. Simply log into the Apple app store, or Google Play if you use an Android device, and search for KXYL or KQBZ. With those apps, you can stream our stations, check the news and weather, and stay up to speed with our Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Our “Taste of Home for the Troops” Makes the News

The Brownwood Bulletin ran a story on “A Taste of Home for the Troops,” our annual drive to collect Girls Scouts Cookies to send to members of the U.S. Armed Forces. You can find the write-up here.

A Taste of Home for Our Troops

From now until Friday, Feb. 24, 2017, the Wendlee Broadcasting Stations will take pledges for Girls Scouts Cookies to send to our soldiers serving overseas. If you would like to donate Girls Scouts Cookies to send to our soldiers, call Wendlee Broadcasting at (325) 646-3535

Thank You for Making the Brian Wade Toys for Kids Toy Drive the Best Ever!

The Brian Wade Toys for Kids Toy Drive was a huge success, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, and those who contributed to the toy drive.
