KARR-AM Seattle to go dark


darkFamily Stations’ Christian Family Radio KARR-AM 1460 Kirkland-Seattle, WA will go dark in the at the end of the month because it lost the lease on its tower site and has been unable to come up with a Plan B. KARR operates with 5kW daytime and 2.5kW nighttime from the site.

From its Facebook page: “As of February 28, 2014 Family Radio station 1460AM KARR in Kirkland, Washington is going off the air due to the loss of our tower lease. We are praying for alternatives.”

Originally an AM daytimer, it signed on as KYAC and was an urban format in 1965. In 1983 the station was granted full-time operation. The station was once KGAA, a country music station owned by Monroe Broadcasting. The station would be sold off in 1979 to Community Communications of Oregon. The station changed its calls to KARR in 1984, and later was bought by Family Stations.
