90.5 - Listen Local on Saturdays

Jan 1, 2014

90.5 becomes VERY local on Saturdays beginning this month. We've added some brand new programs to complement other recent local additions, making it a day that is all about your community.

UPDATE Saturday 5:55pm: With Saturday's warmer temperatures clearing ice from the broadcast antenna, 90.5 FM returned to full power at about 5:30pm.

MONDAY 10:30am: 90.5 FM WKAR is operating at reduced power (approximately 32%) due to icing on the antenna.  Over-the-air reception may be poor for some listeners. Online listening will not be affected.
