KGY INC. AC KGY-A and Country KGY-F/OLYMPIA, WA will have to move from their longtime home on the waterfront after 2009, reports the SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER's BILL VIRGIN, who writes that the station's 50-year lease with the PORT OF OLYMPIA is expiring and the port wants the location for a hotel.
KGY's studios are on pilings over the shallows of BUDD INLET and moved there as part of a waterfront redevelopment project in the 1950s. The station celebrates its 85th anniversary this year, and AM morning host DICK PUST is in his 40th year at KGY.
