A source from WNKY said the station is moving to the old Haverty's building on Scottsville Rd by the end of this year. Their plan is to launch full local news in March 2012 due to pressure from NBC and CBS. Maybe WBKO finally get competition..?

They already seem to know how to do a thing or two better than WBKO. Someone explain to me how they manage to have their weather info like watches and warnings and snow reports overlay properly on an HD signal while WBKO can't? I just love sitting down to watch a WBKO show in HD and then the black bars pop up on the side of the screen because they can't figure out the proper way to do it.

Given enough time and the right people, I'm sure WNKY could move beyond looking like a public access channel into a full fledged alternative in this market. And hopefully, this would push WBKO to evolve in an area beyond weather coverage (which seems to be all they care about changing).

Radar RULES!!!!!!! And yess they are in talks to develop a new program and they will kick WBKO's butt!!!
It's long been known that WBKO's news department is a joke, case-in-point, their miserable coverage of the local floods last year. If you were to only watch their coverage, you would think that one house had a little water in the backyard and a kiddie pool got flooded. Their coverage was so bad, they apologized on their facebok page. Still nothing has changed. Look at the recent killings locally, their coverage was a farce. The case with the woman who abducted her victim, killed her, and then cut out her unborn baby was barely covered. For coverage on this, WTVF in Nashville had twice the information and coverage. The next case, where a teenage boy, who was a foster placement, killed the sister of his foster parents. Again, WTVF gave superior coverage. Last example, the five tornadoes that hit Louisville recently. WBKO didn't have any coverage on this until the next day!!! Even then, all they had were new wire films, they didn't even send a crew up there....geeeeesh!!!!

Yea, I hope WNKY gets news real soon, then maybe Bowling Green can have something better than Gene Birk, his joke of a news department, and we can get away from his 'agenda' of politics and news coverage.

As bad as WBKO is, the people who work there are the best that exist in this town. How will WNKY do any better when they have people who aren't even good enough for WBKO?

WNKY is a joke. Sorry, but it's true and you know I'm right. The production values for their local shows is awful! If the video isn't jacked, the audio is. If the audio isn't jacked, the dumbass dog is either barking or otherwise being a distraction. Did you see the billboards? They had the girl and that goofy weather guy. The guy looked like he'd been up all night partying because he had these big puffy bags under his eyes and they didn't bother to photoshop the picture to clean it up.

That place is a dinky joke.

their production set is worse than waynes world on SNL. they are a low budget jew run operation. WNKY is a joke. The guy who runs the place is a blowhard drunk who thinks his feces dont reek. The sales manager is about the biggest Dick alive and the skanks that sell their ads are a joke. One broad looks like a tranny with her zebra skin patterened coat and ghetto hand bags. they are a train wreck.

WNKY is just slight below WBKO which is just slightly above whale dung.

WNKY had been advertising a weekend newscast the last couple weeks and it just debuted and was a freaking taped show basically summarizing the 6:30 morning shows top highlights from the week. That station is garbage.

You're right. That station has blown it all. The title lists news, sports ans weather which there is none of. and the new show repeats alls weekend. Crappy mish-mash of blah content and regurgitated info from prior shows which no one watches anyways. You know what it's sad they are the Olympics station and the competition wbko had a breaking story on Claire Donahue winning the gold. High school tv is better, hell, an elementary school could plop a card table down and nail a sign to a wall like WNKY. People can bash wbko all they want, but at least they know bare basics of the broadcast biz. WNKY hasn't a clue. I say we start a petition to kick them out of BG, except for Radar! How long can they keep afloat??? Enough smoke & mirrors already!!

This is the biggest load of trash WNKY has ever done in there history. They try to be all bad ass and claim to be a great NBC and CBS station and then produce this false advertising and put this crappy show on the air that was just an informercial combining there 6:30 am shows weeks worth of shows into one. They got WSMV removed off Bowling Green cable and are trying to get WTVF off the cable too. This station should lose there license. 1st graders could produce a better newscast. Radar needs to move to WBKO.

How exactly are they spending cash? Same people sitting on that nasty flea bed bug interview couch. Same pathetic set. Girl asks dumb questions. Boring topics. Any advertisers insane enough to buy time in this show make me want to do business elsewhere. The only investment WNKY has ever made in the last 10 years is the Radar dog instead of a real weather radar. Half the time they go off-air when it sprinkles or showers. More likely Radar ate the wires!!!

WNKY made MORE money in ad revenue for the Olympics ALONE than WBKO made ALL of last year. WBKO competes because they have live newscasts and that's it! When you put Fox/ABC programming vs. NBC/CBS programming it's not even close and THAT'S how WNKY continues to make money and stay in business. The money WNKY makes on NFL games ALONE each season is more money than WBKO makes in two fiscal quarters. Don't believe me? Look it up for yourself. If WNKY ever got a news room, they would put WBKO out of business. WBKO is owned my Grey Television group. And the money that Grey makes from WBKO's newscasts ads and political ads is what they use to keep other Grey stations in business in larger markets where they can't compete. WNKY is the same way with their owner, Max Media. It's just that simple. Both stations make good profits, but those profits are NOT put back into the stations that make them. If they were, and WNKY built a true news room and news casts, combine that with CBS/NBC DOMINATING the ratings... well, Grey would have to make major changes at WBKO. There's your "Television Finances 101" lesson for the day....
And you're welcome!

I wish wnky production values were better. Sound is bad alot. Commercials cut in during a show. End of show cut off by commercial. Then sometimes there is nothing at all. Tried watching big brother last summer and it was hard to do

The morning show is 30 years out of date, WNKY would be dead if not for radar.
