The result of the debate was move to KFI. —Nightstallion (?) 17:38, 13 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Moved from KFI AM 640 to KFI AM. US radio stations often change their broadcast frequency. Although it's not likely that KFI will do so, it's a bad precedent to include the frequency as part of a standard heading. Bill 20:13, 2 Apr 2004 (UTC)

but the station is known as KFI AM 640... it looks really strange now--KFI (AM). Could it be moved to KFI? Or is it Wikipedia policy to have pages titled with only 3 letters be redirects? Perhaps then KFI (radio station) or something similiar depending on historical precedent. Theshibboleth 07:58, 4 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree, the station should be at just KFI, as there is no need for disambiguation here. I think originally there were two articles, KFI AM 640 and KFI, which were subsequently renamed KFI AM and KFI-AM respectively... ultimately the two articles were merged and renamed KFI (AM).

  • Support. I have searched all 3 FCC callsign databases (AM, FM, TV), and can confirm that there is only one station currently using the KFI call letters. I fully support this move per WP:NC#Broadcasting. —A 06:50, 7 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fair use rationale for Image:Opt logo kfi.jpg[edit]

Image:Opt logo kfi.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

The "Real" KFI[edit]

John Ziegler, a former KFI host, has launched a new website exposing much of what goes on in the KFI studio. We should analyze this and possible include some of this information in the KFI wiki.

We can't include anything from that source because it's a self-published site. See WP:V. ·:· Will Beback ·:· 23:14, 15 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

John Paoli[edit]

My husband, John Paoli was the chief engineer for KFI for 10 years (1998-2008) and was responsible for the rebuilding of the tower in 2008. After it's completion, he took a week's vacation and died suddenly on Sunday, October 18, 2008. The tower was dedicated in his name and bears a plaque in remembrance. This can be verified through many of your own links such as the one run by Paul Sakrison. I would appreciate this being included in you article on KFI as John worked endless hours and took great pride in all his responsibilities. If you go to Sakrison's site, there is a photo of John.

Removing "Quality Standards" Tag[edit]

It's apparently been in place since 2008, and I wonder if this is really justified, so I will boldly remove & if anyone sees fit to restore, please include your rationale here.Boogerpatrol (talk) 22:41, 18 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your Current Advertising RE: Dental Procedures[edit]

Many of my friends to listen to your station daily told me about an advertisement that states "wake up with all new teeth". Being born and raised here in Southern California and spending close to three decades in Lake Arrowhead KFI was my favorite radio station for many many years. However due to my house burning to the ground I had no choice but to relocate to Colorado for The Last 5 Years. My parents becoming ill, brought me back home in Nov., 2016. I'm pretty sure your station was 95.1for D.D if I remember correctly and remembered your location being in San Bernardino, CA. Apparently alot of changes have taken place. I have two questions I need answered please. 1. Where can I find you these days ON MY STERO for KFI FM ?? 2. Please give me information on the dental advertisement so many of my friends have told me about at your convenience please! Thank You So Very Much!

Original research, reference required[edit]

"the local regulation authorities in apparent defiance of electrical engineering principles, and communications law, demanded "a 10 percent reduction in overall height", otherwise the necessary permits would be refused, not withstanding the federal government's primary authority over radio communications, and KFI's strategic role as an Emergency Alert System station for the western U.S. region)."

References dead link[edit]

Hello, there is a dead link in the references section. Specifically, the third reference to the PDF by the FCC stating the emergency response plan. It is recommended that the dead link tool be ran on the page and to convert all pages to archived links where possible. Tpaclatee (talk) 17:40, 30 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
