KNEK broadcasts at 1190 AM and is under ownership of Cumulus Media. It was a sister station of KNEK-FM until it was sold to The Last Bastion Station Trust, LLC upon merger of Citadel Broadcasting and ABC Radio. After Citadel swapped KRDJ with KNEK-FM, they are now sister stations again. Citadel merged with Cumulus Media on September 16, 2011.
KNEK started as a country and western station owned by Dee Sylvester and had a popular radio personality named Cholly Charles in the mid-1980s. The station aired from 6 am to sunset playing country music and broadcasting local news and sports along with agricultural updates for the farmers of St. Landry Parish.
Because it shares the same frequency as Clear Channel station XEWK-AM at Guadalajara, Jalisco in Mexico, this station only operates during the daytime hours.
