Story Road Studio Building
San Jose, California
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).

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 building.
