This aircheck of KFWB-AM "News 98", Los Angeles, California was recorded March 2, 1983. The recordedtime frame is approx from 10:56am to 11:40am.
It is a very stormy day in the LA Basin, and KFWB News 98 is all over the storm with news, especially in this hour, it's high tide at the coast. The Pacific Coast Highway is closed, along with many other closures. It was a mess, I was there and recorded the station off-air onto one side of a cassette tape.
This is a great audio history of the news radio format, live reports, local commercials and broadcast reporters in this era around the large Los Angeles radio market. What is notable is the extensive number of reporters KFWB seems to have working the 1983 storm.
KFWB was not the only news station in LA, KNX-AM 1070 also served the market with a second full-time news radio station.
I do not own the copyright on this material but present this historic audio recording as an auditory museum piece to be enjoyed by all.
