KLIV Radio, San Jose
Story Road Studio Building
The studios and business offices for KLIV and KRTY
radio — as well as, at one time, previously-owned KARA — in San Jose
moved to this building on Story Road near
Lucretia Avenue in San Jose after the old KLIV building was torn down.
The new facility shown here is located directly behind
the former building, which was torn down around 2005. In 2007, when the
photograph (above) was taken, only a bare patch of ground remained where
the old studio once stood (see below).

ABOVE: An aerial view of the
KLIV/KRTY building in 2007. The studios and offices for
the stations are located in the large gray-roofed building
(right-center), while the old
building previously stood on the empty patch of land (left-center) in
the parking lot. Note
the shadows of the four KLIV transmitting towers located adjacent to the
KLIV and Empire Broadcasting owner
Robert Kieve at his desk (1994).
