WCYN Radio Station has been Cynthiana's only station for the past 43 years. The station will now offer two options. WCYN AM 1400 hit the air waves in 1956 and added FM 102.3 in the late 1960s. Both stations offered the exact same programming, until now. Beginning Monday you will be able to tune in on 1400-Good Time Oldies with very little talk. And from 11 p.m. to midnight, airing will be "When Radio Was." The FM station will air "Coffee Break," ballgames and religious programs. The only change on the FM station will be the music. C102 Classic Country will be playing music from the 60s through 90s. Ann Anderson is the owner, Bill Bishop and Chris Winkle are the program and operations managers.
