KGB Chicken in Council Chambers with Tom Gade and Larry Stirling. KGB Incorporated's Chicken made a presentation for the development of a soccer field in Morley Field in Balboa Park. KGB donated $62,000 toward the construction. The KGB Chicken became an iconic mascot in sports. The character started as a TV commercial for KGB-FM Radio. In 1974 Ted Giannoulas, a San Diego State journalism major, was hired to wear the first suit. The Chicken, no longer with KGB, continues to make appearances in the United States and abroad.
