KBKW – From the Harbors Only Locally Owned Media Group

Founded in 1949 by Ben K. Weatherwax, KBKW operates 24-hours on 1450 kHz AM & 94.7 FM, from studios at the Jodesha Broadcast Center, 1520 Simpson Avenue in Aberdeen.


KBKW offers some of the biggest names in talk radio, and the area’s ONLY live local AM drive talk show.  Industry veteran Doug McDowell knows his subjects and not only knows what questions to ask, but how to ask them.  Doug’s daily CoffeeTalk program has become THE program to listen to every weekday.  You can talk to Doug on air between 6 and 10 am by calling 360-533-KBKW, or by emailing [email protected].

Award winning News Director David Haviland reports on the latest breaking news that’s important to you. Email a newstip, or question, to [email protected]

Unlike some stations, most of KBKW weekday programming (and most weekend programming) is LIVE. We feel that’s important with the events going on around the world!
