Music reigned on market leader KING AM 1090 from 1954 to this day in 1982 as Joe Cooper signed the format off for the last time, playing, Moments to Remember. The classic Seattle station converted into the market's first all-news station.
The local news format held until 1994 when the Bullit sisters started throwing in the towel on ayem radio.
Joe Cooper writes: "Sad day for me and many others when King Am dumped the music and went all news. Ratings dropped after that and never came back....too. bad."
