Brett Harris ponders whether to remain at B98, where he's been for 21 years

WICHITA — After what he says has been five months of waiting, Brett Harris has been offered a new three-year contract at B98 FM.

"For five months, I didn't have any contract talk at all," Harris says.

That's led him to look at what he calls "a menu of other options if Clear Channel wasn't interested in me."

Harris says he had to consider alternatives to protect his family, which includes two young girls.

"If you don't get an offer in five months, you naturally are going to look at your options for your daughters."

One of those options, which is still on the table, is for Harris and a group of investors to buy Journal Broadcast Group's classic country station KFTI, 92.3-FM.
