Description: WUKY (91.3 FM) is the flagship National Public Radio station in Lexington, Kentucky. Owned by the University of Kentucky, it is an Adult Album Alternative (Indie Rock) station that airs over 100 hours of music a week, in addition to programming from NPR, Public Radio International, the BBC, and American Public Media.WUKY began broadcasting on October 17, 1940 as WBKY, a 100-watt station in Beattyville. However, it has always been owned by UK. It was the first university-owned FM radio station in the United States, as well as the first public radio station in Kentucky. In 1945, the operation moved to Lexington. The station was a charter member of NPR, and was one of the original stations that carried All Things Considered when it debuted in 1971. In 1989, WBKY changed its call letters to WUKY to better reflect its affiliation with UK.Longtime All Things Considered host Noah Adams began his career at WBKY.WUKY is supported by its listeners, who give regularly to the station. It also receives funding from the University of Kentucky, as well as the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and its underwriters.In 2006, WUKY moved its antenna to a tower at Clays Ferry on the Kentucky River. The station also installed a digital transmitter there, and became the first HD Radio station in Lexington, and the first to multi-cast. It now streams 3 digital channels. In 2007, WUKY debuted its online-only arts and music magazine, tonic. It, along with all three digital streams, can be heard at the station's website, wuky.org.
