WKRT (89.3 FM) is an American non-commercial radio station located in Richmond, Indiana and operates on the assigned frequency of 89.3 MHz.

History[edit]

The station previously had the call sign of WVXR and was owned by Cincinnati Classical Public Radio. Three repeater stations (including WVXR) were sold to Christian Voice of Central Ohio in 2007 because of the small population and lack of a revenue stream from the outlying communities and to pay off the debt[1] incurred by the purchase of 7 stations in 2005 from Xavier University for $15 million.[2] As of 2007, WZRP was one of three stations that operated under the name of "The Promise Radio Network". In 2009, the station was sold by Christian Voices of Central Ohio to Educational Media Foundation. On October 7 of that year, the station officially became WKRT, broadcasting EMF's Adult contemporary Christian format, K-LOVE.
