Fire burns KSJX-AM transmitter site


A Saturday night brush fire consumed the transmitter building for KSJX-AM San Jose, CA, knocking the Vietnamese-language station off the air.

According to the San Jose Mercury News 70 firefighters were called to the scene. They managed to keep the flames from spreading to a Kellogg’s Eggo frozen waffles plant, but couldn’t save the radio transmitter building.

KSJX is one of three radio stations in the San Jose and San Francisco market owned by Multicultural Broadcasting.
