It was a cold, snowy morning on February 22, 2015. On that day, the Facebook page for 'Knox County News Now' was created. Over the next few months, we began posting various news stories and daily weather forecasts to our Facebook page.
In August of 2015, to show our true commitment to Knox County, we re-branded as W-A-K-C which stands for We Are Knox County. We began broadcasting 1-2 minute news and weather updates on our Facebook page. Unfortunately, the news and weather updates were not successful and those ended in late 2016.
Over the next few years, we began remodeling our current office space. We built a state of the art news and weather studio, purchased new camera
WAKC News Now began broadcasting daily newscasts weekdays at 10:00am in March 2022.
Knox County Living streams every Friday at Noon showcasing some of the events taking place around our community.
