WNKU-FM, licensed to Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, Kentucky, went on the air in 1985 with a broadcast format of folk and bluegrass music. Although that format has changed over the years it still broadcasts a bluegrass show that has been a fixture on the station since 1989: Music From the Hills of Home, featuring Katie Laur and, for many years, Wayne Clyburn. Long-time Cincinnati area musician/DJ/host Laur and engineer/banjo player/bluegrass fan Clyburn had a great rapport that resulted in a lot of history, commentary, and banter between the two hosts. Katie’s current co-host is Oakley Scot. They broadcast from 8:00-11:00 p.m. to fans in the Tri-State as well as worldwide listeners to the station’s internet stream. When Katie is off the air, Bill and Vickie Hensley fill in for her. In 2006, WNKU program director Grady Kirkpatrick produced and hosted a two-hour documentary on the career of the Osborne Brothers that was distributed internationally by Bgrass, Inc.
