WUKY - FM 91.3 - Lexington, KY

NPR Rocks @ 91.3

Well, we're old. WUKY, where NPR Rocks@ 91.3, was the first university-owned FM radio station in America, and Kentucky's first public radio station. We came ... See more e to life on October 17, 1940, as WBKY, operating with a mere 100 watts, in Beattyville, KY. In 1945, WBKY came to Lexington. In 1989, WBKY changed its call letters to WUKY to better reflect its affiliation with the University of Kentucky. WUKY helped create National Public Radio, and was one of the first stations to carry NPR's "All Things Considered" when it debuted in 1971.We're licensed to the University of Kentucky, and serve Lexington and much of central Kentucky with 100,000 watts. We stream our signal to the world, too. Listen. In early 2007, we became the first Lexington radio station to broadcast in HD - high definition, digital radio. We also debuted our first web-only radio show, "tonic," in early 2007. We air a diverse schedule. Our news comes from NPR, and our own newsroom. Our music is Triple A (also known as Adult Rock or Progressive Music). We report to Friday Morning Quarterback's non-commercial Triple A panel. Our specialty music shows encompass Women's Music, Americana, Blues, World, and more. There's humor, arts, and culture here, too. WUKY is supported by its membership: listeners who regularly give their financial support to the station. And to them we say, "Thanks!" We also thank our program underwriters, the University of Kentucky, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, who, with our members, keep listener-supported radio, 91.3 WUKY, afloat.
