Happy Birthday KALW. Today, our station is eighty one years old. We’re one of the oldest FM stations in the country and the oldest west of the Misissippi. Last year, Mayor London Breed honored our station and proclaimed September 1 KALW day in San Francisco.

And to celebrate what we have accomplished so far, we’ve reached out to our friends and colleagues who helped make our News Department what it is today. They’ll share what they are up to now and how KALW helped them along the way.

Here are the stories they shared:
