“It’s a great honor to have Mayor Gorton recognize the importance of WEKU and what it means to the community,” said Mike Savage, Director and General Manager of WEKU. “WEKU is proud to provide great music programming to Central and Eastern Kentucky.”

WEKU’s local music programming includes regional favorites such as broadcasts of the Lexington Philharmonic, Red Barn Radio and Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour. The station also broadcasts new programming like weekly radio magazine the Eastern Standard, Ohio Valley Resource, Think History,and weekly interviews.  

“Listeners rely on WEKU to learn about the world around them,” said Savage. “For many, WEKU is their only source of noncommercial news and music.”
