Enduring Expanding Shale Network Radio Service To Pearsall
For Immediate Release
April 14, 2014 Pearsall, Texas: The broadcast division of Enduring Oil Exploration LLC., of Karnes County announced that the company has signed an agreement to provide news and entertainment programming to Radio Station KMFR-AM 1280 KHz in Pearsall, Texas. This station will be added to the other AM and FM stations programmed by Enduring as part of a South Texas regional network and cluster associated with the main area of activity in the Eagle Ford Shale, according to Enduring CEO David Martin Phillip of Karnes City.
The deal was struck between Phillip and John Barger, President of San Antonio RadioWorks, LLC, station owner. Phillip and his company have begun tailoring localized programming for the Eagle Ford area, which includes daily drilling reports, extensive tracking of oil and gas stocks along with other investment reports, employment opportunities, and how-to information for local existing businesses wanting to be part of the Shale-driven economic expansion.
Local community services will also be part of the programming mix from Enduring on AM-1280. The station will host a local job and employment bulletin board, livestock auction sales reports, other farm and ranch programming, as well as twice-weekly freshwater and salt water fishing reports. Area high school sports events will be covered. Enduring plans to offer internships to area students with an interest in broadcast journalism.
Enduring has radio stations in Kenedy and Beeville, Texas and is currently moving to obtain four other Texas radio stations. Phillip’s plans are to acquire numerous small market radio stations in clusters on a regional basis, with network service to as many as twenty-five or more stations in the shale oil producing regions of Texas.
Target date for Enduring’s programming on Pearsall’s AM-1280 is early May. Barger, a pioneer-developer of the news-talk radio format in Texas, will assist Phillip and his staff in cohesively melding Enduring’s various program elements. Barger’s 40-plus years of radio has included management posts and ownership stakes at differing times at WOAI, KAJA, KONO, KAHL, KRIO, and Dallas’ KRLD.
