Stonewater Roofing is proud to be working with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on an East Texas roofing project. While he is no longer heard on the radio, the one-time Republican presidential candidate remains the co-owner of several radio stations in both Arkansas and Texas including KLJT in Jacksonville, located roughly 25 miles south of Tyler.
Huckabee and his business partner, Arkansas broadcaster Paul Coates, purchased the station from Waller Broadcasting in 2017, along with three others in the East Texas area. KLJT was previously known as Fun! FM before going off the air this past summer. The station relaunched this year as Fuzion 102.3 with a Spanish language Christian format.
However, the station’s previous headquarters at 402 South Ragsdale Street in Jacksonville no longer serves as the main home for KLJT. The property is actually listed for sale by realtor John Magouyrk. To increase the building’s value, it is receiving a new roof from Stonewater Roofing. The previous roof had been bombarded by hail and was in need of replacement.
Stonewater Roofing’s salespeople had no idea that the property belonged to Huckabee when they first visited. “You never know who it’s going to be when you knock on that door,” explained company CEO Roland Browne. A deal was struck in December and construction began on the project earlier this week.
“Working with a high-profile company, like Huckabee and his people, only bolsters what we’re trying to do,” Browne continued.
