WUUU Returns With A Roar

Cat Country 98.9 Big Kat WUUU Franklinton Marcus PittmannAfter going silent in July following the loss of its previous tower site, Pittmann Broadcasting Service’s “Cat Country 98.9” WUUU Franklinton, LA has returned to the air with a loop of Katy Perry’s Roar.

WUUU was granted a Construction Permit to operate as a Class C3 with 25kW at 100 meters at the end of November; an increase from its former Class A with 6kW at 33 meters. Its former CatCountry989.com website now redirects to a parking page for BigKat989.com, perhaps playing off the soon to be increased coverage. The new signal will give WUUU coverage in most of Northeaster Louisiana including Bogalusa, Hammond, and Kentwood.
