KFFB is a radio station serving the Fairfield Bay, Arkansas, and 10 counties in North Central Arkansas area. It broadcasts on FM frequency 106.1 MHz and is under ownership of Freedom Broadcasting with Bob Connell (current secretary/ treasurer of the Arkansas Broadcasters Association and secretary/ treasurer of the Broadcasters of Arkansas PAC) serving as General Manager/Owner. Their programming schedule consists of news from ABC News and the Arkansas Radio Network. The rest of the programming slots are filled with Oldies/Adult Standards music. Previously, the music format was syndicated by Citadel Media's Timeless satellite feed, but as of November, 2009, its programming consists of the Adult Standards Music Format from Dial Global Networks.
KFFB's web site (www.kffb.com) is also a major local source of news, event information, and a political blogspot. The on-air programming is also streamed live from the website.
The station also broadcasts a Christmas Holiday basketball tournament, "The Greer's Ferry Lake Classic".
According to KFFB, since 2001, the station has had a unique agreement with several out-of-market voice talents to provide commercial production of ads for the station's sponsors. This blend of professional voices and detailed post-production work is part of what gives KFFB its signature sound.
The station's other major contribution is its commitment to weather coverage. During the 2008 tornado outbreak and the winter of early 2009 ice storms, the station kept the northern region of the state up to date with information on emergency aid, shelters, and weather warnings leading up to these significant weather events.
The station lost the top 100 feet of its broadcast tower during the 2009 ice storm. Thanks to the efforts of tower crews, electricians, and station personnel, the station was off the air only a few hours. The tower was rebuilt a few weeks later with an all new transmitter and antenna system, restoring its broadcast signal to the ten-county service area.
The station has been honored repeatedly by the Arkansas Broadcasters Association for its community service.
