WNKU Gets Nod In CityBeat’s ‘Best Of Cincinnati’

CINCINNATI’S alternative paper -- CITYBEAT -- has this to say, calling WNKU “Best Radio Upgrade.” “There was nothing ‘wrong’ with NORTHERN KENTUCKY’s WNKU (89.7 FM), but the station got even better in 2015, moving away from some of its Adult Alternative/Americana programming in favor of a more eclectic playlist of Modern Rock.
"It reminded some local listeners of the old WOXY, which made it all the more fitting when former 97X DJ MATT SLEDGE returned to the airwaves to host shifts. The station also doubled down on its support of homegrown music, playing a local act at least once every hour, spotlighting a different GREATER CINCINNATI artist every month and giving local musician Freekbass a FRIDAY EVENING Funk radio show.
