HD Channels are Down

As of a couple weeks ago, our two HD channels have been down. We’ve got a handle on the issue now, and are hoping to resolve it shortly. Apologies for the inconvenience; we know most of all that lack of the essential WREK nutrient is costly to the soul.

In the meantime, please tune in to our regular radio signal, or listen online here on wrek.org. Sorry for the trouble.
