The WKHS radio station is owned by the board of education of Kent County and this week of Tuesday March 19th will commemorate 50 years or operation of this unique broadcast training program.  WHHS is a class B1 full power FM station in the Baltimore DMA, with all facets operated by students and community volunteers.  WKHS is one of the very few high power stations in the country with great success rate of employment to hundreds still in industry, including our own DC market engineer Fred Willard of Televisa/Univision.  The station puts solid grade B signal into Baltimore city and has an omnidirectional reception radius of 60 miles.

This studio site is about a 70 mile (1 ½ hour) drive from either the Baltimore or DC Beltways. If you can, take some time off and make an impression and share your wisdom and life experience with a young student.  The young are impressionable and perhaps you’ll make a real imprint in guiding the future leaders of our industry.

The station is within the Kent County High School campus.  Turning off MD route 298 into the school drive way, keep straight past the school’s main entrance to the rear parking lot.  Then look to your left for MEDIA FORWARD signs and the unremarkable double doors leading to the station, inside and to your right.
