Chamber Member of the Week: WKTG – 93.9
WKTG traces its design back to 1949 in Madisonville, adopting different call letters over the years. Found on the radio dial at 93.9 or online, the station plays a mix of classic and new rock.
The station became part of the Owensboro community in 1998 when they built a new tower midway between Madisonville and Owensboro. President and CEO Bob Kelley said building the tower and adding high-definition technology has increased their reach and improved their quality.
“When we built the tower in 1998, we were able to become a true regional radio station,” Kelley said. “We are one of the few HD radio stations in the region. It sounds amazing when listening on an HD receiver. »
Compared to standard AM and FM radio bands, HD radio provides better sound quality while allowing stations to add more programming via additional channels that air “alongside” a station’s main frequency.
Full of talent and classic rock, the station’s lineup begins in the morning with Bill McClane, followed by a Go out for lunch Aaron Bone show.
“Bill did a lot of comedy and ventriloquism with his model, Rusty the Redneck, at many nightclubs in the area,” Kelley said. “Aaron’s Go out for lunch the show is a noon show, for all requests.
Former The Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman shines a light on the eccentric nighttime line-up. Gorman is from Hopkinsville and airs the show Steve Gorman Rocks live from Nashville every night.
The studio also proudly presents all University of Kentucky basketball and football broadcasts.
The many polls and contests on the station make it a fan favorite among radio listeners. For more information about WKTG – 93.9 or to connect online, visit their website here.
