Public radio station KPFT — with studios in Montrose — bumped up its broadcasting power recently to the maximum 10,000 watts. Station manager Duane Bradley told the Houston Chronicle that KPFT is the “most solid” it’s ever been in the station’s nearly 50-year history, calling the upgrade a “future for the next generation.”

While the new, more powerful signal doesn’t expand the station’s geographic reach, it does make the current signal more “robust and solid” within the current service area, which goes as far as Clear Lake, Baytown, New Waverly and even Huntsville.
