Due to electrical issues at the transmitter site, WKYU, 88.9 FM in Bowling Green is operating at reduced power Friday morning. This may affect reception outside of Warren County.

This does not affect our other transmitters, or our live webstream.

WKYU-FM Signal Back At Full Power

Update at 12:25pm C.T.:  The transmitter is back at full power now.  Thanks to Chief Engineer Don Eastman for getting things sorted out so quickly!

A tree-trimming crew accidentally damaged the power line to WKYU-FM Wednesday morning. As a result, we are broadcasting via an auxillary transmitter while damage is assessed and repaired. This reduces the coverage area for 88.9FM, and may therefore affect your reception. This does not affect our webstream.

Thanks for your patience while our engineers work on this!
