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.
In addition, I will be talking with a Syndicator about carrying shows from a major network that should be of interest to our audience. A variety of shows ranging from politics to health, automobiles, science and more will be heard each week on the station. Hopefully we'll be able to sign an agreement to carry these shows within a few 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.
