KJR Staff Photo 1947

In 1947, the KJR staff numbered at least 29 persons, judging from the photo above taken at the company Christmas party.  That year, Birt Fisher sold KJR to Marshall Field Enterprises for $700,000 and retired to his Ellensburg ranch.  The new owner was Marshall Field III, whose holdings included KOIN AM/FM in Portland, WJJD in Chicago, and the Chicago Sun Times newspaper.
