News and Information about the station, programs, and special events.

Here is the latest update on road conditions from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet:

Overnight, KYTC crews plowed all state maintained routes.  With temperatures below zero in some locations, chemical treatments were not an option overnight.  Plowing will continue this morning and we are beginning to lay salt along routes.

Packed snow and refreezing conditions are common this morning.

I-65 South of Elizabethtown - Semi blockages from Wednesday night are now cleared and motorists who were stuck through Hart County were able to make their way north on Thursday evening.  There were several semis which would not start or could not move in the queue.  Other vehicles were able to "snake" through.

Looking for a special way to honor a loved one, charitable organization, or special cause?

You can become a Day Sponsor on WKU Public Radio, and have a message honoring that individual or group read over the air. A staff member will work with you to craft the language of your message, and it will be aired five times on your special day.

It's a great way to surprise and honor someone on their birthday or anniversary, or pay tribute to a community organization.

If you're interested in learning more about our Day Sponsorship program, contact Brian Becker at (270) 745-4749, or brian.becker@wku.edu.
