Changes to WUKY's HD 2, HD 3 Start This Week

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 6, 2019) WUKY, the University of Kentucky's NPR station, announces program changes to its HD 2 and HD 3 stations starting Thursday, May 9.

The BBC News will move to HD 2 May 9 and also stay on HD 3 for two more weeks. On HD 2, "Jazz 24" will no longer be available.

"It saddens us that 'Jazz 24,' which has been on HD 2, is no longer going to be produced," said WUKY Program Director John Lumagui. "We have been looking for a jazz program replacement, but there are currently no options available."

In another change in the coming weeks, HD 3 will be programmed with WUKY news, music and features.

"As new programming options become available, they will be considered," Lumagui said. "As always, WUKY wants to make multiple listening options available to our audience."

If anyone has questions or programming suggestions, please call WUKY at 859-257-3221.

WUKY’s HD programming is available over the air with HD radio, streaming online at and via WUKY's Android and iPhone apps. Also, you can ask your Alexa or Google Home smart speaker to play WUKY HD 2 or WUKY HD 3.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion two years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. The Chronicle of Higher Education judged us a “Great College to Work for,”  and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for three straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
