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.

The Latest Station News

The Weather Underground logo has been changed to our own symbol.  The link to the Weather Underground site still functions with the current conditions here at the station and forecast.

I've scappted plans to air the local weather forecasts for now due to the fact I've been busy with my full time job and also developing the music formatted station which will air along with the News/Talk after relocation.

Plans to resume looking at suitable properties for the radio station in other states should resume in January.  I don't believe an interruption of broadcast service will result since the station is largely automated and the software can also be controlled to some  degree via remote locations  when wi fi is available.

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.
