WPCK (104.9 FM, "Nash FM 99.5 & 104.9") is a radio station licensed to Denmark, Wisconsin and serving the Green Bay area as a simulcast of Oshkosh-based country music station WPKR. The station is owned and operated by WPKR's owner Cumulus Media.
The station was previously known in the 1970s and 1980s as Top 40 station WKAU-FM, but became oldies-formatted WKFX by 1990. In 1997, an ownership change saw the station become WPCK, simulcasting its Oshkosh sister station WPKR ("Packer Country"). Both stations would eventually be acquired by Cumulus Media, who would break off the simulcast in November 2003, with WPCK keeping a country format but adopting its own identity, "Kicks 104.9." In 2009, Clear Channel Communications would acquire WPCK and 4 other Green Bay area stations owned by Cumulus as part of an ownership swap for 2 Ohio stations that went from Clear Channel to Cumulus; Cumulus, as part of the deal, continued to operate WPCK; in August 2013, Clear Channel reached a deal to sell its Green Bay stations back to Cumulus. The sale was consummated on December 31, 2013 at a price of $17,636,643.
In June 2011, WPCK would reunite with WPKR in a simulcast, branded as "99.5 and 104.9 The Wolf," incorporating new and existing elements from both stations. The "Wolf" branding would give way on May 24, 2013 to the new branding of "Nash FM, 99.5 and 104.9;" WPCK and WPKR were two of six Cumulus country stations to adopt the "Nash FM" branding that day, part of Cumulus' plan to nationally expand its multimedia "Nash FM" country branding, which was launched earlier in 2013 at its New York City station, WNSH.
