History:
Started off as WCNA in the mid-60's, with a country format.  Put on by local dentist, Dr. Ralph Sheppard.  Changed to WKEA in 1981.  In late August 2013 the station debuted a translator on 105.7 MHz, relaying WKEA.  In a curious move, despite being a simulcast, the translator has its own branding, as "Lake 105.7", including a website that redirects back to K-98's site. Strange.
