A Smaller Signal For A Former ‘Station of the Stars’


LOS ANGELES — It boasted an airstaff that included Wink Martindale, Geoff Edwards, Gary Owens, Robert W. Morgan and Rollye Jamesamong many, many others.

And, it was a longtime sibling to KTLA-5, the first station to broadcast the famed New Year’s Day Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, Calif.

That station was KMPC and, today, the flagship home of ESPN Radio for Southern California — KSPN-AM 710. And, it’s about to get a downgrade of sorts.
