KSO Des Moines Register Ad
December 30, 1968


Stoner Broadcasting had recently acquired ownership of KSO and consequently ran this full page ad in the Des Moines Register to promote their staff and a promotion called the "KSO Sturdy Box." We don't know exactly what the "Sturdy Box" campaign was all about, but the ad shows the KSO staff standing on the boxes touting the station as "The Big One." The station's format was "Middle of the Road."
