KYA Radio, San Francisco
Hearst Radio, Inc., constructed this attractive site for its station KYA on Candlestick Hill (Bayview Park) in the southeast corner of San Francisco. Designed by Julia Morgan, the modern art deco transmitter building housed a new 5,000-watt transmitter. A 450-foot self-supporting tower (in the foreground) completed the new installation.
This facility, easily visible from the 101 Freeway near the city limits, went on the air June 1, 1937, and is currently used by KOIT, KYA’s successor on 1260 AM.
