WKDZ-FM plays an awesome combination of traditional country, country classic, new country and remakes. We are well known nationwide for our local ag, news and weather coverage.  WKDZ-FM provides more local news than any other radio station in the listening area.  In fact, we are the only station in Western Kentucky that does a full one hour local newscast, weekdays at noon and 5pm.  Our commitment to news is phenomenal.  When news or weather breaks out, we do not hesitate to break in.  In fact, you can count on it!

WHVO OLDIES 1480AM/96.5 FM and WKDZ 1110AM/100.9 FM combine to create the baby boomers' dream-come-true station, Oldies Radio, playing all of the hits from the 50's, 60's, and 70's.  Thousands of listeners literally heard the original rock and roll songs we play today when 1480 was WKOA.  One of the most popular programs on WHVO Oldies 1480/96.5 FM is "Hoptown This Morning".  It's the perfect blend of Fox News, Local News, Hoptown Happenings and Oldies music!  1110/100.9 FM listeners enjoy an extremely local morning show, The KDZ Country Club, that is news and information intensive.

Oldies Radio was designed to combine the coverage area of 1480 and 1110 to create a larger listener area for oldies lovers to enjoy.  Oldies Radio broadcasts more than 100 local events each year.  If it's happening locally, we are involved.  "We're there, so you can be there."  We take our commitment to local radio very seriously and strive to provide you with the most comprehensive news, weather, and local happenings available anywhere.  WHVO is the home of the Fort Campbell Falcons football too.
