What is the frequency?

KWNK-LP broadcasts on 97.7FM in Reno, Nevada. (The “LP” stands for “low power.”)

How old is KWNK? and when do you broadcast?

We launched on October 31st of 2017 with the help of Open Sky Radio. We broadcast from 4pm to 4am daily.

I really liked a show I heard on the air. Can I listen to it again?

How can I get my own radio show?

KWNK won’t be accepting show applications until the fall, but we have many other available opportunities to get involved. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, visit the get involved page.

Are there commercials?

No! KWNK is a nonprofit radio station and we do not air commercials. We do get support from local businesses in the form of underwriting. In return for businesses sponsoring the station the FCC allows us to broadcast on-air acknowledgments. For example:

“KWNK is made possible in part by the Reno Bike Project, a non-profit community bike shop and resource for the Truckee Meadows committed to creating a cycling-friendly community through workshops, bike rentals, and mechanical expertise.
Now located at 216 E Grove Street. Find out more at renobikeproject.org.”
