In May of 2018, the Campaign for Classical KING FM was launched to provide critical funding for the station as it needed to vacate its Harrison Street studios by February 2020. With a total goal of $6 million, the Campaign aimed at funding construction, equipment and move of our studios, as well as providing critical financial stability for the station.
In June of 2019, Classical KING FM signed a lease with Seattle Opera to share space in their administrative building at Seattle Center (click here for press release). In February 2020, construction and equipment were completed and the KING FM signal was transferred to our new home.
We are deeply grateful to the 2,800 donors who have contributed to this important project so far. We are getting really close to our goal, and as November 1, 2020 only have $170,000 left to raise before we are able to unlock a capping grant of $150,000 from the Murdock Trust.
