Freelance writer Richard Wagoner has penned a piece about the longevity and only 3 formats at KKGO. That's 2 more formats than ownership changes. "Last week marked a major accomplishment: the 52nd anniversary of the day KKGO (105.1 FM) went on the air. No, KKGO wasn't the first FM station to begin broadcasting in Los Angeles; that distinction belongs to KRTH, which began life in August, 1941 as K45LA. KKGO, which launched Feb. 18, 1959 is significant for another landmark reason: It has been owned and operated by the same person since Day One".
