WREK Email Service + Wrektranet2 back up!

WREK email’s service as well as Wrektranet2 are back up.

Currently, WREK email’s service is unavailable. Engineering and IT teams are currently working on a solution and updates will soon follow. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

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.
