According to its website, “KBNP’s all-business news and financial information niche was carved from a history of broadcasting that began in 1949, when AM 1410 was the Portland’s original KPAM. The “Sounds of the Classics” played from 1949 until 1973 on Portland Amplitude Modulation station.
“1973-1976 call signs changed to KLSC, and the “All Oldies All The Time” format.
“1982-86 heard new call letters KCNR featuring “More Of Your Favorites” under the banner—”Center of the Dial” moniker.
“1986-1988 introduced KKUL, “Cool Jazz and Jazz Classics” to Northwest listeners, but competing with FM stations that drew audiences whose demand for “hi-fidelity” in their musical tastes was a struggle for this little AM signal.
“In 1989, KBNP presented “Knowledge for the Business of Living”, under a signature of Portland Business Radio. Delivering news of business practices, employment trends, cottage industry growth, world market investments and financial news. KBNP was among the first five all-business stations in the country. By 1994, as Bloomberg Radio’s first affiliate “west of the Mississippi” KBNP further established our technical prowess establishing a website and became the first radio station to “netcast” our programming via the Internet in real-time audio—attracting a worldwide audience. To better reflect the importance stock market investments played, in 1998 KBNP adopted the identity of “The MONEY STATION”.
“The MONEY STATION’s focus remains “Providing sources and resources to listeners on: skills to make, grow and protect the monies listeners earn; successful business practices; and, having achieved the lifestyle they’ve built— how to enjoy the benefits of their labors.”
