In 2012, about 80 percent of surveyed employed adults age 18 or older living in the Los Angeles metropolitan area listen
to radio each day.  Their average listening time totals 2 hours and 15 minutes.  Of these, Spanish-speaking working adults
spend the most time on average listening to radio (Source: Arbitron).

The John and Ken Show on KFI AM 640 is the most listened-to local radio talk show in the nation.  In the peak hour
of their daily broadcasts, they draw an audience of about one million listeners. John Kobylt and Ken
Chiampou began
broadcasting in Los Angeles in 1992, coming from New Jersey and New York.

First licensed on March 10, 1922, as KJS, the 1330 kHz frequency (AM) is one of the oldest radio stations in the
nation.
It is also the one of the oldest Spanish-language radio stations in the nation.

In 1971, then Los Angeles International Airport manager Clifton Moore came up with an idea for a radio station that
would broadcast airport traffic information for visitors to LAX.  He thought it would help relieve growing airport traffic
congestion.  Radio engineers William S. Halstead and Richard W. Burden were brought in to put the project together.
By 1972, the new station began broadcasting in the immediate LAX area on AM frequency 840.  It quickly became
apparent that early 1970s drivers still had to find radio stations on a “slide dial" which distracted them from driving.
Halstead and Burden found that car radios could actually tune into radio frequency 530 at the very  “bottom of the dial.
Such a station frequency could easily be located on the radio dial without actually having to look at the dial.  The new
station switched to AM 530 and came to be known as LAX Air Radio 530The station, which eventually could be heard
as far away as 30 miles from the airport, broadcast continuously until 2011.  By then, the contract with the vendor that
managed the station expired and the airport decided not to fund the station any longer.
