Dear WMKY listeners,

Recent ice and snow storms caused a disruption in our broadcast service of WMKY at 90.3FM.

Electricity to the transmitter site was lost on the evening of February 10th. WMKY’s auxiliary transmitter provided back-up service until noon on February 14th when fuel operating the emergency generator went empty. Safety concerns prevented service vehicles access on the remote tower road due to an accumulation of ice, snow and fallen trees.

During this outage, WMKY continued operations, providing programming through our digital and online services including phone apps, smart speakers and web-streaming.

On February 24th, electricity was restored to the transmitter site and we’ve been able to resume WMKY’s regular broadcast operations on 90.3FM.

The health and safety of our staff, students and volunteers will always be one of my primary concerns. At the same time, we remain committed to serving our broadcast region with news, information and entertainment. We apologize for the disruption in our regular broadcast operations and any inconvenience this may have caused.

Thanks for your patience, understanding and continued support of Morehead State Public Radio – WMKY. Serving eastern Kentucky since 1965 and broadcasting at 90.3FM.

Sincerely,

Paul Hitchcock, GM
