KUIK (1360 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a talk format, and licensed to Hillsboro, Oregon. It is currently owned by Dolphin Communications, Inc.

History[edit]

KUIK first went on the air in 1954 from studios and offices on Oregon Route 219 just south of downtown Hillsboro. Later, the station moved to its current facility in the Hillsboro Airport terminal. Don McCoun purchased the station in 1978, and operated it until selling it in 2005 to Spencer Rubin.[1] McCoun stayed on as a show host, and resumed ownership of KUIK in 2012.[1]

Programming[edit]

The station carries nationally syndicated talk-show hosts Laura Ingraham and Dennis Prager, in addition to locally-originated news and talk programming. KUIK also airs local high-school sports, San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders football, San Francisco Giants baseball and NASCAR racing events. KUIK serves Washington County, which includes the cities and communities of Hillsboro, Beaverton, Aloha, Tigard, Tualatin, Sherwood, Wilsonville, Forest Grove and Banks.

KUIK carries University of Oregon Ducks baseball and women's basketball as a member of the Oregon Sports Network.[2]
