Key Peninsula Radio Station May Go Dark

KGHP was created when community members Keith Stiles, Don Hoffman, Max Bice and Bill Boyd decided the community needed a radio station and went to the district, which agreed to be a partner in the endeavor in 1988. KGHP provides live-action radio coverage of home football games for both Peninsula and Gig Harbor high schools. They cover boys and girls varsity basketball at home games whenever possible and sometimes remotely at Gig Harbor High. They also cover high school baseball games occasionally at special events at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma. KGHP produces live broadcasts of Key Peninsula candidate forums, informs the public during outages, emergencies and disaster situations, and plays a wide variety of music.
And now, a study is underway to decide the fate of KGHP, as student interest in the school’s radio broadcast program has decreased. KeyPenNews.Org
