Aug. 31 will be red-letter day for KNKX.
Immediately following the close of sale, listeners will hear the new call letters of KNKX.
The Friends group raised more than $7 million from 18,000 donors to purchase the station from Pacific Lutheran University. The goal was reached May 26. Additional contributions since then have built a fund to cover operations after the station changes hands.
The station chose KNKX as its new call letters last week, based on listener ideas.
