KWNK needs your help for it’s membership drive. You can sign up or donate here.

You can read more on the website here.

KWNK 97.7FM is Reno’s first freeform, non-commercial, community radio project. After nearly a decade of work to bring this project to fruition, KWNK officially launched on Oct. 31, 2017, on 97.7FM with a slate of more than 50 volunteer DJs and programming from 4pm-4am daily.

 

The KWNK Radiothon is a community-driven, listener-driven fundraising campaign to ensure KWNK’s future on-air, online, and in our community. This is KWNK’s first membership drive, and its most important. Meeting our goal solidifies the station within our community, while also growing it in very important ways, including: taking the station to 24-hr programming; providing online streaming and show archiving; purchasing necessary equipment and supplies; and more.

Bikes for Tykes Thursday, November 16th, 2017

Put a little extra holiday cheer out into the world and our community, and join us at one of two volunteer wrenching parties on December 2 or December 9 from 11-3!

Reno Bike Project’s Freewheels for Kids outreach program provides free bikes to kids in need during the holiday season. Children’s bikes, donated by community members, are repaired, tuned up, and spruced up by RBP volunteers. Those bikes are then donated to community organizations who distribute the bikes to families in need.


Join us to work on bikes for the tykes, under the supervision of RBP mechanics. Enjoy refreshments and the company of other service-minded people. No experience needed to volunteer—this is a great learning opportunity!

CALL FOR COMMUNITY DJS – DEADLINE OCT 2 Thursday, September 21st, 2017

KWNK’s mission is to champion music and ideas through community-driven, non-commercial radio in Reno and beyond. Community Radio that is volunteer-based and listener-supported strengthens community ties and builds civic engagement. It’s a huge, long-anticipated, much-needed and exciting project and RBP is one of the partners & biggest cheerleaders. Check out the video below, the website HERE, or follow along on FB or Instagram!

* * * UPDATE: CALL FOR COMMUNITY DJS – DEADLINE OCT 2 * * *

It has been a long time coming and we are finally able to announce that Reno will be getting a community radio station this fall! As many of you know, Reno has been without a freeform community radio station (with both an FM and online presence) for a long time and we are so excited to see this finally change. The station is 97.7FM KWNK – and all our programming is by and for the people of our community. KWNK will feature programming from UNR’s student-run online station, Wolf Pack Radio, as well as programming from people in the community – like YOU!

Here’s where you come in. Want your own show?

As we gear up to get on the air in the coming weeks, we are reaching out to people we think represent our community and would be interested in being a part of KWNK’s first program. KWNK is a platform to amplify our voices and our culture through FM radio and give our community a station that isn’t corporate controlled and run on algorithms. We’re interested in your interests, in the music you like, and in the bands and artists that inspire and excite you. 

There are FOUR OPTIONS for incoming DJs:

1. Weekly show: 30mins or 1hr, every week

2. Monthly show: 30mins or 1hr, once a month

3. One-Off: 30mins or 1hr, specialty show or playlist 

4. Segment/Sweepers: Segments are 1-5mins on a short topic or announcement, Sweepers are even shorter – ie. “You are listening to KWNK 97.7FM, Reno”

We would love for you to be a part of KWNK as one of the important voices represented, and to help launch KWNK as a community staple. As we begin, KWNK will be on air from 4PM-4AM every day (starting Oct 2017), for roughly 6 months. By March 2018, the goal is that KWNK will take over, and transition into a full-time, 24 hr, fully fledged community radio station. As you can see, this 6 month part-time period is crucial for showing the potential of what KWNK can and will be, and we’d love for you to be a part of this journey. 

If you’re interested in being a DJ or participating in KWNK, please fill out this ONLINE FORM and shoot it back to us by Monday, Oct 2. Once submitted, we’ll be blocking out the available hours for shows and programming, and will be doing some one-on-one training on how to build your show and send it in for broadcast.
