The station is currently owned by Clear Channel and features programing from Fox Sports Radio and Premiere Radio Networks.[1] Its branding is Fox Sports Radio 850 AM and it carries the entire Fox Sports Radio lineup of programs as well as the Jim Rome show weekdays from 9 a.m. to noon.

History

The station went on the air as "85 KTAC", and was a Top 40 competitor to KJR-AM, KING-AM and KOL-AM throughout the 70's. Don Wade, Robert O'Smith, John Williams, Ron Erak, Bruce Cannon, Bob Case and Rick Hanson were among the air personalities during its Top 40 dominance of the south Puget Sound area. The calls changed to KMTT on 1992-06-19, simulcasting with then sister station KMTT-FM (103.7 The Mountain). Entercom sold the station to Southwave Wireless, LLC (Steve West and Dan Walker) in 1996, and on March 11, 1996, the station changed its call sign to the current KHHO and launched a News/Talk format (K-H-2-O, The Voice of the South Sound) featuring Manda Factor, Jeff Walker and Bruce Cannon. In 1998 the station was acquired by The Ackerley Group and adopted an all-sports format.[2]
