A Word from WLIK

Football time is always the most exciting time of the year in East Tennessee. WLIK has been proud to be the Voice of the Vols for sixty years in Newport. This year will be no exception. WLIK will follow the Vols of Head Coach Butch Jones in his second season. We will have all the pre game shows and post game talk shows and scoreboards. Plus we will have "Vol Calls" Wednesday night at 8:00 and "Big Orange Hotline" Monday nights at 8:00. Due to the first game being on Sunday, August 31st, WLIK will be unable to join the game until 8:00.
WLIK will begin our forty fifth season of high school football. We will follow the Big Red of Cocke County High School throughout the season. (See schedule on sports page). Brian Evans will bring you all the excitement - Coaches Shows and Player of the Week. Steve Souder will present Cosby Football. WLIK will have the playback of the Cosby game Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. "Fumblin' Around" returns! That popular - whimsical football talk and predictions show with Rick Brooks and his cast of characters will kick off Friday evenings right after 5:00 pm. This year WLIK will have the High School football scores again. Friday nights after the game and all the scores on Saturday morning. Hope you plan to join us for all the fun on WLIK.
