Calvin Smith bought into the company in 1965 and started WRSL-FM on 95.9 mHz in 1967. WRSL-FM was upgraded to a higher-powered signal and moved to 96.3 mHz in 1995 and eventually the call sign was changed to WXKY-FM. Due to business opportunites, we recently moved WRSL-AM to Corbin, Kentucky and sold WXKY-FM to Educational Media Foundation in 2006, which operates the station as a non-commercial station. Recently, we answered the call of the community to bring back local, commercial radio with WPBK-FM. WPBK-FM is Central Kentucky's newest radio station and is a full-powered, commercial radio station operating on 102.9 mHz. The station is licensed by the FCC to Crab Orchard, Kentucky, in Lincoln County. The transmitting antenna is located on the highest point in the county and the studio and business office is located in the Arch "Buzz" Walker building on Main Street in Stanford. The station operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our focus is on serving the needs of the Lincoln County community, of which Crab Orchard is a part. Our music format is a wide variety. We sincerely believe that radio is much more to our listeners than just a juke box. Our music selections are entertaining and appeal to a wide audience but it is the information that we are dissemenating that is most important. Music is available everywhere these days from iPods to satellite radio. However, you can't get local news and information from an iPod or satellite radio. As the pace of our lives increases, radio becomes more relevant and more important. No other medium can travel with you as a constant companion like radio does. Radio is nimble and instantaneous. Radio is local and radio works for listeners and advertisers alike.
