AM 1000 Seattle FCC History Cards
CLICK HERE to view the History Cards for this station.
A disgruntled former employee, Vincent L. Hoffart, who was fired from KISW in the late 1970s, has continually challenged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) renewal application of KJR/KISW. In 1987, he wrote a book about his dealings with the FCC, KISW, and Kaye-Smith titled A Case Of Notorial Imperfections which was reprinted in 2006 as Gippergate. (Why the FCC continued to file KJR history under KOMO station cards, long after the stations seperated ownership–remains a mystery.)
