CALIFORNIA RADIO PARTNERS Triple A KOZT (THE COAST)/FT. BRAGG, CA morning host RUSS FAUST is on a mission to save the OLD COAST HOTEL. FAUST is half of the KOZT RUSS & REGELSKI morning shoe. The radio station is located across the street and just a few doors down from the hotel.
According to the FT. BRAGG ADVOCARE-NEWS the hotel is onsidered a landmark in the town and has been closed since 2010. FAUST hopes to raise enough money via crowd-funding to acquire and bring the dormant hotel back to life. The effort is being promoted on RocketHub, a web-based crowd-funding tool that collects donations for projects online. If successful, the fund drive would gather enough seed money to attract other funds and investors.
The OLD COAST HOTEL was built in 1892. It was one of the few places in town to survive the 1906 earthquake. If FAUST's fund drive does not attract enough to acquire the hotel, the funds will be redirected to another neglected landmark in the community.
