WNKU Tower Space Available for Lease

Jul 17, 2012

WNKU welcomes inquiries from communications companies seeking to lease tower space for their operations. WNKU owns and operates three broadcast transmission sites of interest due to their location and height. 

WNKU, 89.7 FM operates at an effective radiated power (ERP) of 12,000 watts at Height above Average Terrain (HAAT) of 318’.  Our transmitter is due north of our studios and located in NKU's Physical Plant building.  WNKU is currently the lone occupant of this site that is about five miles as the crow flies from downtown Cincinnati.

WNKU simulcasts on WPFB, 910 AM and WNKN, 105.9 FM in Middletown, Ohio.  WPFB-AM is a 1 kW daytime station, 100 watts in the evening. WNKN operates at an effective radiated power (ERP) of 34,000 watts at a HAAT of 594’. We are also hosting one 6 kW FM station on the tower site and should have room for one, perhaps two broadcast tenants, plus wireless services. Its location between Dayton and Cincinnati, proximity to I-75 and height offer attractive options.

WNKU also simulcasts on WNKE, 104.1 licensed to Portsmouth, Ohio. WNKE operates at an ERP of 100,000 watts at a HAAT of 1476’ across the river from Portsmouth. Its height and ability to serve key locations like Portsmouth, Ashland/Huntington, and Athens, Ohio make this site very useful.We have plenty of room for your service at this location.
