Each week, more than 7.5 million Americans listen to Triple A music on public radio stations like WUKY. WUKY is just one of more than 330 public radio stations that play Triple A music. WUKY is the only Triple A radio station in this market and offers the biggest variety of music in Central Kentucky.

What is Triple A? It stands for adult album alternative but it encompasses a wide variety of music such as folk, bluegrass, Celtic and gospel. You can learn more about Triple A from noncomMUSIC Alliance.

WUKY is a community-supported service of the University of Kentucky which provides high-quality news, cultural and entertainment content through the use of existing and emerging media to create a more informed and engaged community.

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
