Central Calif. Radio Station Owner Dies In Paragliding Accident


SOLVANG, CALIF. — For more than two decades, he’s been an operator of radio stations serving one of the most bucolic viticultural regions of the Golden State — the wine-producing Santa Ynez Valley of northern Santa Barbara County.

His assets include a Hot Adult Contemporary FM with a signal reaching San Luis Obispo to the north; a “KRAZy Country” Class A serving Solvang and Santa Ynez; and a Santa Maria-based News/Talker with an FM translator targeting Vandenberg Air Force Base from Los Alamos.

The future of the stations’ ownership must now be considered, as Knight Broadcasting owner Shawn Knight has died following a paragliding accident.
