WUKY was the first university-owned FM radio station in America and Kentucky's first public radio station. WUKY helped create National Public Radio and was one of the first stations to carry NPR's "All Things Considered" when it debuted in 1971. The station is licensed to the University of Kentucky and serves the Lexington and central Kentucky area with 100,000 watts. In early 2007, WUKY became the first Lexington radio station to broadcast in HD - high definition digital radio.
