A long chapter in Los Angeles rock radio comes to an end today, Dec. 11, when radio station KLOS-FM (95.5) broadcasts its final programs out of the Culver City studio where it has been based since 1969 and moves to a new location nearby.

The long-running “Breakfast With the Beatles” show will be the final program broadcast from the La Cienega Boulevard studio, and when it ends at noon, the station will switch over to Sunday afternoon host Marci Wiser’s show from the new studios.

The building that’s been home to KLOS for nearly 50 years— from the dawn of the era of underground FM rock radio — was put up for sale earlier this year, the offices to be subdivided.

Other operations also owned by KLOS parent company Cumulus Media — the Westwood One syndication firm and NBC Sports Radio — are moving across the street to a building that formerly housed station KQLZ-FM (Pirate Radio) to create space for continued KLOS and KABC-AM operations.
