KOMO in Seattle is now KNWN.
We knew that change was happening, but now it’s official. It is one of the latest call sign changes reported by the FCC for the month of February.
Actually, it’s two of them, because new licensee Lotus Seattle Corp. has changed KOMO(AM) and KOMO-FM to KNWN(AM) and KNWN-FM, respectively.
Sinclair Broadcast Group exited the radio industry last fall with the sale of three stations in Seattle to Lotus Communications. They were “News Radio” KOMO(AM/FM), hot AC “Star 101.5” KPLZ and “Talk Radio 570” KVI.
