One of the first radio station buildings in the Treasure Valley is about to get new life.

The History of Idaho Broadcasting Foundation has agreed to purchase the former KFXD building on 12th Avenue South in in Downtown Nampa.

The building has hosted a number of businesses since KFXD moved elsewhere (and was late consolidated with Boise sister stations under the Townsquare Media banner).

Art Gregory runs the radio group – and plans the Idaho Broadcasting History & Education Center, which could tap into his group’s large collection of material about radio and television around the state.

The group has launched a capital campaign to pay off the building.
