Historic radio station KGY and its sister station KAYO have renewed a lease with the Port of Olympia that will keep them on port property for another 10 years.
Both stations operate out of a building on the port peninsula that overlooks Budd Inlet.
“The port and KGY have a long history of working together and we’re very pleased to be here for the foreseeable future,” General Manager Jackson Dell Weaver said in a statement.
KGY broadcasts local news and 60s and 70s oldies at 1240AM and 95.3FM. KAYO broadcasts country music at 96.9 FM.

“We are pleased that KGY, a community icon, will continue to be a resident on the port peninsula and we wish them every success in the coming years,” Port Commissioner Bill McGregor said in a statement.
The Kerry family has owned KGY since 1939.
