Steve West named new GM @ KQKT

20-20 NewsNovember 1986 – Longtime KISW GM, Steve West, has left to assume that post at crosstown KQKT December 1, when new owner Shamrock Broadcasting takes over from Behan. He replaces Stephen Jacobs, who has become GM and part-owner at adult contemporary KGMG San Diego. No successor for West has been named at KISW.
West has been a Northwestern radio fixture over the course of three decades. He was an air personality at one time Top 40 giant KJR in the 1960s before leaving in 1972 program KTAC Tacoma. He was then PD at KJR sister station KJRB Spokane before rejoining KJR as PD. After a promotion to Assistant Manager at KJR, he was made GM at then co-owned KISW in 1979.
West admits he probably wouldn’t have left KISW if it’s ownership hadn’t changed (Nationwide took over from Kaye-Smith last month). – Radio & Records

Internet Radio – the wave of the future

Streaming media is already becoming the new wave and the bandwagon everyone is jumping on. With thousands of radio stations/various formats to choose from, I am listening to Barry Manilow, while reading the Logitech Squeeze Box manual.


[thanks to Bill Ogden for passing down this Logitech radio. His new C Crane radio arrived by UPS today. The boys must have their toys.]
