In 1947, the KJR staff numbered at least 29 persons, judging from the photo above taken at the company Christmas party. That year, Birt Fisher sold KJR to Marshall Field Enterprises for $700,000 and retired to his Ellensburg ranch. The new owner was Marshall Field III, whose holdings included KOIN AM/FM in Portland, WJJD in Chicago, and the Chicago Sun Times newspaper.
