WKRP-LP, or 101.9 WKRP, is a community low power FM ("LPFM") radio station operating in Raleigh, North Carolina.

History[edit]

Organization[edit]

Capital Area Team Sports, Inc.was granted a construction permit by the Federal Communications Commission to build an LPFM on March 18, 2014.[1] The organization changed its corporate name to Oak City Media, Inc. shortly thereafter.

The call sign is a nod to the fictitious title station on CBS' late-1970s sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati.

Construction and sign-on[edit]

Station studio construction was completed in September 2015, with its transmitter, antenna and related equipment installed in November.[2] The station's license was granted on November 30, 2015 and signed on the same day.[3]

The station's broadcast radius encompasses the area between Interstate 440 and Interstate 540 in northeast Raleigh.[4]
