WNKK is an FM radio station in Circleville, Ohio, located at 107.1 MHz. It went on the air in the 1960's as WNRE which stood for the young owner's name, Nelson Embry. At the time, the station broadcast from a small downtown Circleville studio with a very low power signal. The transmitter was later moved to its present location on a hill along State Route 159 northeast of Circleville. The station played hard rock as WAZU "1071 The Big Wazoo" until January 8th, 2007. In October 2006, former station owners CBS Radio sold the station to Wilks Broadcast Group, LLC. On Monday, January 8, 2007, at 8:00 pm WAZU abandoned the hard rock format and flipped to "new country," calling itself "WINK 107.1." WNKK is currently the radio broadcast home of the Columbus Destroyers of the Arena Football League.
