History

WRVK was founded in 1957 by John Lair and Tom Hargis in Renfro Valley, Kentucky. The station is currently owned by Saylor Broadcasting, Inc. Today, WRVK features a unique format of traditional country, bluegrass, gospel, and oldies music programming. The station also provides local news, sports, and weather coverage Mondays - Saturdays, a local tradio program entitled "Whatcha Got?", and the Renfro Valley Gatherin' as well as local church programming on Sundays. The station has its own live local music program, "The Suppertime Jubilee," which is broadcast on Tuesday evenings from 6-8 PM Eastern Time.

Internet radio

WRVK's radio coverage area is Rockcastle County, Kentucky and immediate surrounding areas. The station began broadcasting 24 hours a day on the radio in July, 2008. WRVK's radio coverage area is reduced to the Mt. Vernon area at night, due to transmitter power being reduced per FCC regulations pertaining to "daylight only" stations. WRVK also broadcasts streaming audio online 24/7 to listeners worldwide. This had previously been a rebroadcast of the previous day's radio programs, but is now a live stream of the syndicated and pre-recorded shows which are broadcast on the radio station while it is on low power at night.
