What nice surprise for a retired broadcast journalist to see! Ted Knightlinger was my father, and someplace in my box of mementos is a photo of me in my baseball uniform being “interviewed” by a now-unknown announcer standing in front of the KTNT news car. The only advice me Dad gave to me long ago was not to use “Knightlinger” on the air because it is an uncommon name. I was always “Knight” on-air and then legally after several years.

Thanks, Steve. Your father was a major player in Tacoma radio. Thanks for checking in!
