RICHMOND, Ky. -- The news director of WEKU, the public radio service of Eastern Kentucky University, was recently elected as an at-large representative to the Board of Directors of Public Radio News Directors Inc. Charles Compton, who has served as news director at WEKU since 2005, was first elected last year to fill the unexpired term of the Board’s mid-sized newsroom representative. His term as an at-large representative is for two years.
UPDATE: WEKU 88.9 will likely be operating at reduced power or off the air at times on Saturday AFTERNOON. Our Hazard, Corbin and Pineville transmitters will be unaffected. This is a result of work that tower owner KET must have done on the transmission tower at Clay's Ferry.
