KHHO (850 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a sports format. Licensed to Tacoma, Washington, USA, the station serves the Tacoma portion of the Seattle-Tacoma radio market. The station is currently owned by iHeartMedia, Inc. and features programming from Fox Sports Radio. Its branding is South Sound Sports 850, and it carries all of the Fox Sports Radio lineup of programs.
The station carries play-by-play of the Tacoma Rainiers Pacific Coast League team. It was previously Tacoma's network affiliate of the Washington State Cougars IMG College network. The station's transmitter site is in Tacoma, and operates from its studios in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood northwest of downtown.
The station went on the air as KTAC ("85 KTAC") in 1960, and was a Top 40 competitor to KJR, KING and KOL throughout the 1970s. Don Wade, Robert O'Smith, John Williams, Ron Erak, Bruce Cannon, Bob Case and Ric Hansen were among the air personalities during its Top 40 dominance of the south Puget Sound area. The calls changed to KMTT on June 19, 1992, 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.
