106.7 KQNK-FM Off The Air Due To Transmitter Malfunction

NORTON – The transmitter for 106.7 KQNK-FM Saturday experienced a technical malfunction that has taken the station off-the-air. An engineer is scheduled to arrive Sunday to assess the situation and see what repairs need to be completed. It is possible parts will need to be ordered, and could extend the outage until Wednesday.

Regular programming continues on 1530 KQNK-AM during the day as well as our mobile app and website. We will update as soon as we have more information to pass along.
