It is briefly mentioned that Europe remained neutral during the conflict and that India and Israel have declared war on Pakistan. In 1953 the television station KCMO-TV was launched. Meredith Corporation acquired both the radio and television stations in October 1953, less than a month after the television station went on the air. Meredith later acquired what became KCMO-FM, 94.9 FM. The radio stations were spun off from the television station in 1983 when the TV station moved its studios to Fairway, Kansas and changed its call letters to KCTV. (Meredith continues to own KCTV to this day.) That year, Richard Fairbanks (a one-time owner of what is today WXIA-TV in Atlanta, Georgia) bought both of the KCMO radio stations. The stations were then sold to the Summit Communications Group in 1985, then to the Gannett Company in 1986. Bonneville International, the then-owner of KMBZ (KMBZ (AM)) and KLTH (now KZPT), acquired both KCMO stations in 1993. Four years later, Bonneville sold its entire Kansas City cluster plus three radio stations in Seattle, Washington (Seattle) to Entercom Communications. On October 3, 1998, shortly after Entercom assumed control of the KCMO stations, KCMO-AM swapped frequencies with WHB, with KCMO assuming its present-day 710 AM position. In 2000, Entercom was forced to sell both KCMO stations to Susquehanna Radio after its purchase of Sinclair Broadcasting (Sinclair Broadcast Group)'s Kansas City properties (KQRC-FM, KXTR-FM (KRBZ) and KCIY (WDAF-FM)) left it two stations over the Federal Communications Commission's single-market ownership limit. Cumulus Media acquired the stations in 2006 with its acquisition of Susquehanna. In 2008, ''USA Today'' listed nine top bookstore travel destinations in the United States as: ''Books & Books'' in Coral Gables, Florida, ''City Lights Books'' in San Francisco, ''The Elliott Bay Book Company'' in Seattle, ''Politics and Prose'' in Washington, D.C., ''Powell's Books (Powell's Bookstore)'' in Portland, Oregon, ''Prairie Lights'' in Iowa City, Iowa, ''Tattered Cover'' in Denver, Colorado, ''That Bookstore in Blytheville'' in Blytheville, Arkansas, and the ''Strand Book Store'' in New York City.
The Seattle area had previously been inhabited by Native Americans (Native Americans in the United States) for at least 4,000 years before the first permanent European settlers. The settlement was moved to its current site and named "Seattle" in 1852, after Chief Si'ahl (Chief Seattle) of the local Duwamish (Duwamish tribe) and Suquamish (Suquamish tribe) tribes.
Logging was Seattle's first major industry, but by the late 19th century the city had become a commercial and shipbuilding center as a gateway to Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush. By 1910, Seattle was one of the 25 largest cities in the country. However, the Great Depression severely damaged the city's economy. Growth returned during and after World War II, due partially to the local Boeing company, which established Seattle as a center for aircraft manufacturing. The city developed as a technology center in the 1980s, with companies like Amazon.com, Microsoft and T-Mobile US based in the area. The stream of new software, biotechnology, and Internet companies led to an economic revival, which increased the city's population by almost 50,000 between 1990 and 2000. Since then, Seattle has become a hub for green industry and a model for sustainable development.
Seattle has a noteworthy musical history. From 1918 to 1951, there were nearly two dozen jazz nightclubs along Jackson Street, from the current Chinatown International District, to the Central District. The jazz scene developed the early careers of Ray Charles, Quincy Jones, Ernestine Anderson and others. Seattle is also the birthplace of rock musician Jimi Hendrix and the alternative rock style grunge.
