Awards & Winners


KGO is an all news radio station based in San Francisco, California. Until December 2011, KGO operated for several decades as a news and call-in talk station, originating nearly all of its own programming locally. After broad ownership and format changes in 2011, including the laying-off of most of its talk show hosts, the station converted to an all news format, under Cumulus Media. KGO is accessible throughout the western United States east to the Rocky Mountains, and in northern Mexico, southwestern Canada, and Alaska at night. KGO operated as the West Coast flagship radio station of the American Broadcasting Company until the radio group was purchased by Citadel Broadcasting in 2007. The station is now owned by Cumulus Media, following its 2011 merger with Citadel. KGO has its current studios located in the SoMa portion of San Francisco's Financial District; before Cumulus took over the station, it was previously based in the same building as its former television partner KGO-TV at the ABC Broadcast Center. Its transmitter site is based in Newark near the Dumbarton Bridge. Two of KGO's three towers partially collapsed during the Loma Prieta earthquake on October 17, 1989. All three were replaced.
