Welcome to the new website for WNKC AM 1620 in Covington, Kentucky.
WNKC AM is a legal, unlicensed Part 15 AM radio station authorized by the Federal Communications Commission to broadcast with one tenth of one watt of power with a small antenna. WNKC AM replaces the former WIMP AM and its Smooth Jazz format with a Talk format.
The majority of our shows are being aried from the Genesesis Communications Network (GCN). We'll tweak the program schedule in the months ahead and may add and delete a couple of existing shows. We'll publish the hourly program schedule here on the site within a couple of weeks.
In the near future we'll insert the local weather forecasts into our daily broadcast schedule as a service to the local listeners. Please visit the site for future updates.
The Latest Station News

Some issues with the weather station publishing to the internet have cropped up. It appears the weather station console is the issue. Be prepared to see intermittent reporting of the current condtions from time to time. The wi fi connection from the console to the router appears to be the issue.

I've begun work on the second radio station I have planned upon choosing a new community for relocation. A music format will be aired on that station to complement the News/Talk heard currently on WNKC AM. There is a possibility I will run both stations from here in Covington by the Spring in an effort to continue to improve upon the sound of these stations and insure a more reliable and uninterrupted audio for our listening audience.

I will be visiting two towns in western Pennsylvania and possibly one small town in western Kentucky next week. None have local radio and may offer a suitable listening audience and market for the two Part 15 radio stations I am developing. In addition to considering these locations, I still have small towns in Missouri, Kansas and Indiana on the short list. Ultimately whichever location I am able to purchase a suitable property first, will be the new home for the radio stations.
