KRSN moves to Conoco Hill

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Gillian and Dave Sutton appeared tired but excited Wednesday as they packed up the last of their 10 state awards received this year from the New Mexico Broadcasters Association/AP.
Following their final interview, which included Department of Public Utilities Manager John Arrowsmith and DPU spokesperson Allison Majure, the couple moved from Central Park Square, where the station has operated for 10 years, into a new studio in the Hilltop Shopping Center.
“We’ve moved for economic reasons — going from a big office with big bills to a little office with little bills,” Gillian said. “Plus we’ll be in the line of sight of our new antenna and can run a microwave system to transmit our signal from our new studio to our new antenna.”
The antenna she refers to is 170-feet tall and has been the subject of an arduous and expensive approval process.
The Suttons purchased KRSN from a bankruptcy situation five years ago and immediately began efforts to erect a new antenna in the townsite. The current antenna is located in White Rock, which the FCC does not consider to be part of Los Alamos. The current location also is blamed for spotty reception. The new site across from Los Alamos Middle School on Hawk Drive was purchased through an agreement with Los Alamos Public Schools.
