Condolences to family and friends of longtime SEATTLE broadcaster WALLY NELSKOG, who died WEDNESDAY (2/15) at the age of 92, according to a message on the FACEBOOK page of SANDUSKY Adult Standards KIXI-A/SEATTLE, which NELSKOG formerly owned.
NELSKOG was an on-air personality at KHQ-A and KREM-A/SPOKANE and KING-A, KRSC-A and KJR-A/SEATTLE before buying KLAN-A in 1958. He flipped the station to Top 40 as KQDE-A, then to Beautiful Music as KIXI-A in 1961. He sold the station and its FM counterpart (KLTX) in 1986. He also launched KYNG-A/COOS BAY, OR and owned KYXY/SAN DIEGO and several other stations.
