WKNC-FM HD (2016-present)

In 2016, WKNC reconfigured its antenna pattern to increase its signal coverage further south and east to include another 24,000 potential listeners. WKNC also expanded its non-indie rock programming in 2016, giving more hours to Underground and Afterhours to better balance the radio's primary formats.

To celebrate its 50th anniversary as an FM radio station, WKNC launched its HD-1 channel on Oct. 9, 1966. The station continued to upgrade its equipment, converting one of its production studios to second on-air studio with plans to launch WKNC HD-2 in January 2019.
