Earlier this month, Cumulus' Country/WWKI (100.5fm, Kokomo) turned 50 years old. When 100.5fm signed on in 1968, the station aired Classical music.

The station had lots of special programming during that week, including interviews with veteran radio station staff, commemorative imaging, and a "Business After Hours/50th Anniversary” event.
