WPCK (104.9 FM, "Kicks 104.9") is a Country formatted radio station licensed to Denmark, Wisconsin, that serves the Green Bay area. The station is owned by Cumulus Media. WPCK's main competition is WNCY-FM.

History

The station was previously known in the 1970s and 1980s as Top 40 station WKAU-FM, but became oldies-formatted WKFX by 1990. In 1997, an ownership change saw the station become WPCK, simulcasting its Oshkosh sister station WPKR ("Packer Country"). Both stations would eventually be acquired by Cumulus Media, who would break off the simulcast in November 2003, with WPCK keeping a country format but adopting its present "Kicks 104.9" identity. WPCK's weather updates are provided by The Weather Channel.

Cumulus Media has announced that it would swap 5 of their radio stations (including WPCK) with Clear Channel Communications for 2 of their stations in Ohio, though Cumulus would continue to operate the stations after the ownership transfer should it be approved.[1]
