WKVK (106.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Contemporary Christian format. Licensed to Semora, North Carolina, it serves a large swath of central North Carolina as an outlet of K-LOVE. The station is currently owned by Educational Media Foundation.
Southern Entertainment Corporation signed on WPXX as a 6,000-watt class A FM in early 1996 from nearby Danville, Virginia, as contemporary hits "Danville Pixx 106.7". Studios were located on Northmont Boulevard, just off North Main Street with a tower site west of Danville. On July 1, 1998, WPXX flipped to a satellite-delivered oldies format as "Pixx Pure Gold 106.7". After several offers from companies looking to move this valuable frequency to the bigger surrounding markets, K-Love parent company Educational Media Foundation bought WPXX in 2000, taking the station non-commercial as WKVE with the network's contemporary Christian format. Several months later, the newly minted WKVE upgraded to a class "C2" with 50,000 watts, adding Durham, Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, Burlington and Greensboro to their coverage area from a new tower site near Yanceyville, in Caswell County. On March 9, 2009, the station became WKVK, and the former call letters went to a classic rock station at 103.1 in Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania.
In addition to the main station, WKVK is relayed by an additional six translators to widen its broadcast area.
