    1984 Sacramento Radio - KFBK

    History KFBK's history reaches back to station KVQ (first license issued: February 2, 1922), which shut down later that year after listener complaints about interference. KVQ's facilities were sold to the Kimball-Upson Music Store and the Sacramento Union newspaper.

    Later, Kimball-Upson sold out to The McClatchy Company, a local, family-owned company which not only owned the Sacramento Bee newspaper, but other media outlets in the California Central Valley.

    At one time, Sacramento market TV station KOVR 13 was also owned by McClatchy, along with newspapers and broadcast outlets throughout Central California. Because of its signal strength and location KFBK was for many decades the chief method by which Central Valley farmers obtained weather, prices and other vital farming information.

    In the 1980s, KFBK employed Morton Downey, Jr. as a local midday host; after Downey's departure, Rush Limbaugh replaced him at the station. Limbaugh first rose to prominence in this position in Sacramento before becoming nationally syndicated in 1988. Limbaugh's national program still airs on KFBK in the same time slot where he hosted locally.

    What's happening about the price at the pump is very interesting. Supply is going up, demand is going down, and the price is going up (referring to recent data). - Nancy Pelosi
