KNRY is proud to be the home of the “Your Town” Radio & Television Program, which not only ‘airs’ weekday afternoons at five on KNRY, but is also on television, on cable channel 24 and on the web at Besides locally produced brokered programs, our in house programs and our nationwide ‘political’ talk programs, KNRY ‘airs’ a variety of programs from the “Business Talk Radio” network. As one can see, KNRY is definitely your radio station for variety. On June 11th, 1935, Richard Field Lewis, a resident of Piedmont, California, received a construction permit from the Federal Communications Commission to build and operate a new broadcast station at Del Monte, California. Authorized was 100-watt operation on 1210 kilocycles. Call letters KFUH were assigned to the proposed station. A studio was installed at the Polo Field House on the grounds of the Del Monte Hotel on Del Monte Avenue, also the proposed site of the transmitter and tower. (The Hotel Del Monte, the third hotel built on the same site, was taken over by the Federal Government during World War Two and is now the U.S. Naval Officers Postgraduate School). Prior to going on the air, the call letters were changed, on August 13th, 1935, from KFUH to KDON. On Tuesday October 1st, 1935, KDON made its air debut. In 1937, the studios were moved to 275 Pearl Street, Monterey and the city of license was changed from Del Monte to Monterey. The transmitter was located at the Municipal Wharf. In 1941, as a result of the NARBA Treaty, (frequency reallocations affecting the dial position of most Northern American broadcasting stations), KDON was assigned 1240 kilocycles in lieu of the former 1210 kilocycles. Also, in 1941, the FCC authorized the station to increase power from 100 to 250 watts. In 1946, the offices and studios were moved a block away to 468 Calle Principal (within the San Carlos Hotel). In 1949, a new antenna was installed at its current site on Cannery Row. Also in 1949, the call letters were changed from KDON to KMBY. In 1951, new owners included Harry L. “Bing” Crosby, who had a 33% interest and was Vice President and Treasurer. In 1961, after several ownership changes, KMBY moved its studios to 651 Cannery Row (the Bear Flag Building, built in 1929). Also in 1961, the FCC allowed an increase of power from 250 watts to 1,000 watts daytime. In 1978, the call letters were changed from KMBY to KESE. In 1982 the call letters were changed to its current KNRY. In December 1984, nighttime power was increased to 1,000 watts to match the daytime power. In 2001, Joe Rosa (current owner) bought AM 1240 KNRY and established a second studio. In 2005, ‘News Talk’ AM 1240 KNRY celebrated its 70th year in broadcasting.
