Public radio station KNKX goes from the brink of doom to new downtown Tacoma digs


KNKX (88.5 MHz) is a public radio station in Tacoma, Washington. As a National Public Radio affiliate, it airs a jazz and news format for the Seattle metropolitan area. Formerly a part of Pacific Lutheran University, the station is now owned by Friends of 88.5 FM, a community-based non-profit group, who purchased the radio station and its network of translators and rebroadcasters from the university in 2015. KNKX was broadcasting from an on-campus location, but desired a new location independent of the university as part of its new corporate identity.  The station hired Doug Larson with Heartland to assist them in securing office relocation and broadcast space in downtown Tacoma. After a comprehensive search, the station leased a property in the Theater District and began broadcasting operations there in September 2019.
