Bill King (1928-2005) was in the second year of his reign as the voice of the AFL’s Oakland Raiders, a position he would continue to hold until 1992. His partner in the broadcast booth on KNEW 91 was Van Amburg (1930-2017; born Fred Van Amburg, Jr.), who would later go on to be a noted television newscaster at KGO-TV (Channel 7). The executive producer of Raider radio on the Metromedia network was KNEW sports director Barney Lee.
