WKRK’s radio broadcast currently off air; still broadcasting on TV and Internet

TECHNICAL-DIFFICULTIESDuring the lightning storm on Monday evening, September 9th, WKRK took a major hit at our transmitter site … probably one of the worst hits we’ve seen during our past 18 years of ownership. Folks who normally listen to WKRK at AM-1320 (radio) will not be able to hear us for several days on that channel. However, our broadcast will continue as scheduled on Cable TV Channel 25, our online stream at, and on your smartphone or tablet by downloading the free TuneInRadio app. All our regular shows will continue on those channels.

We have a lot of transmitter parts to order and have shipped from the factory. When those parts arrive, it will take some time to rebuild. our transmitter. We are committed to returning to the airwaves as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience as we rebuild.

If you have friends and family who are faithful WKRK listeners who aren’t on Facebook or online, please let them know what’s going on. That’d really help us out.

Special thanks to Matt Wilson and Tom Eaton for their help in troubleshooting all the problems. This is way above my head technically. So it’s nice to know there are good people out there in our community who I can turn to for help with the knowledge to fix what breaks when my Band Aids don’t work.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Again, we will resume our regular broadcast as soon as humanly possible. Thanks for understanding. Have a great day.

Feel free to share any post from the WKRK website that you feel is beneficial to your community. We encourage input from local law enforcement, government officials, emergency management officials, schools and other public service organizations. To send us information, use the form on our WKRK Info page.
