WNKU’s Final Piece Signs Off

89.7 WNKU Cincinnati 105.9 WNKN Middletown Dayton 104.1 WNKE HuntingtonThe final piece of the former AAA network based at 89.7 WNKU Highland Heights KY/Cincinnati OH signed off this evening.

105.9 WNKN Middletown OH ended programming at 6pm as new owner Grant County Broadcasting takes over with the intent to debut its new format on Monday, October 2. Grant County purchased WNKN in July for $5.3 million to pair with its existing Classic Country 106.7 WNKR Williamstown KY but is keeping what it intends to do with the station close to the vest.

The WNKU programming ended with Acting GM/Afternoon host thanking many of the past and present staffers of the station by name and playing Talking Heads “This Must Be The Place” after a day spent playing listener requests and stories about the station.

The other two pieces of the WNKU network were sold earlier this year. 89.7 WNKU is now Bible Broadcasting’s WYHH and 104.1 WNKE New Boston OH is now Educational Media Foundation’s WPAY-FM.

Enjoying our final moments together on WNKU…
