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 aired 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.
