KSFO Air Personalities, 1950s to 1970s
KSFO was bought by Gene Autry's
Golden West Broadcasters in 1956. It was under the careful guidance of
Manager Bill Shaw that KSFO rose to even greater heights. This was done
with a skillful blend of talented air personalities, middle of the road
music, a crack local news department and broadcasts of Giants baseball
and 49'ers football. During the Golden West era, KSFO was
continually the number one rated station in the Bay Area.
Golden West sold KSFO to KING Broadcasting Company
