Community Days


As Ohio continues to reopen, it’s more important than ever to tell the stories of the small towns and business that make Northwest Ohio great! While we have had to postpone a few dates, we’re excited to announce that our Community Day events are back starting June 5th in Findlay! We will of course follow CDC guidelines for social distancing and sanitation for each broadcast. Throughout our Community Day Tour, we’ll return to several local communities, and we’ll spend the day for the first time in a few NEW communities too. Our goal is to learn more about the towns and villages that make our area great, and show some love to people and programs that don’t get much time in the spotlight. Of course, we’ll spend time talking about high school sports, but it’s not often you get to hear from a school’s Jr. High Orchestra program, the Band Director, or the people who are planning the annual community festival. We aim to bring the soul of each community through the speakers of the area’s most listened to radio station, and we do that by taking the entire station on the road for an entire day each month during our Community Day season, starting June 5th in Findlay!

WKXA’s Community Days for 2020 are presented by The Hancock County Convention and Visitors Bureau, online at!

Thanks for all the support in Carey, Bluffton, Findlay, Fostoria, Leipsic, New Riegel, and Pandora!
