In 1926, the Fishers founded a radio station (KOMO) and went on the air in part to advertise Fisher's Blend Flour. Another famous product was Fisher Scones, purveyed at fairs and festivals throughout the Northwest. The president of the Puyallup Fair, William Paulhamus, discovered the triangular shaped scones in 1915 at the Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco. He debuted the scones at the Puyallup Fair the same year.
The flour milling firm acquired more stations and today (2002) is owner of 26 radio stations and 12 TV stations including KOMO-TV in Seattle. The firm owned (until September 2002) substantial real estate on Lake Union and continues to own property in downtown Seattle (Fisher Plaza on 4th Avenue), and in Kent and Auburn. In 2001, Fisher Communications, which remains a Seattle-based company, sold the flour mill to Pendleton Flour Mills, a firm based in Pendleton, Oregon. The flour business was losing money.
In July 2002, Pendleton put the historic Harbor Island property up for sale.
