WKNC celebrates 50th anniversary as FM by adding HD
On Oct. 9, 1966, WKNC switched from an AM to FM radio station. Fifty years later, the station had upgraded to an HD radio signal.
“We chose October 9 to flip the switch because it’s symbolic as our 50th anniversary as an FM station,” Jamie Lynn Gilbert, associate director of NC State Student Media said. “We’ve grown enormously in the past fifty years and chose that date to highlight the transformation of the station from a carrier current station built in someone’s dorm in Watauga Hall to a 25,000 Watt operation which, in terms of wattage and coverage pattern is one of the top ten largest student-run radio stations in the nation.”

After 70 years, WKCO will move out of Farr Hall basement
The radio station will have to relocate following Farr Hall’s destruction in July of 2017.
Next year, if you tune your radio to 91.9 FM, the broadcasting frequency for WKCO Radio Free Kenyon, you may hear “broadcasting live from Peirce Hall.”
After the planned July 2017 demolition of Farr Hall outlined by the Master Plan, Kenyon radio station WKCO will move its studio into a temporary space. WKCO general managers Adam Brill ’17 and Julia Waldow ’17 have been meeting with Chief Business Officer Mark Kohlman to facilitate the transition of the station’s office, booth and recording studio. (Waldow is also an art director for the Collegian, and this reporter was previously a radio DJ, though she is no longer affiliated with WKCO.)
