Its studios and offices are located on East 57th Avenue and its transmitter site is in Spangle, Washington.
KGA was first licensed on February 4, 1927, by original owner Louis Wasmer.
KGA's first studios were in the old Radio Center Building across the street from the Davenport Hotel and its transmitter was on the northside of Spokane where the Lidgerwood Elementary School is now located.
KGA was a successful Country music outlet from the 1969 until 1994, when it switched to a news/talk format.
