Stephen King doesn't just write books! WKIT-FM is a radio station that is part of the Zone Corporation media group owned by author Stephen King and his wife, Tabitha King.
It is located in Bangor, Maine, where King also resides, and is one of the few radio stations in the USA that is still locally owned. It has been a classic rock station since 1990.
The radio station has always been consistent and that launched it to #1 in the ratings. What makes it special is the fact that it is the only station in the state—and one of few in the USA—that is live 24 hours per day. There is a DJ on air at all times.
If you are wondering why Stephen King owns a Rock radio station, you probably also do not know that he is in the band "Rock Bottom Remainders." The other band members are Dave Barry, Amy Tan, Robert Fulghum, Matt Groenig and Roy Blount, Jr. The band spent two weeks touring the East Coast and massacred rock songs in "clubs where the customers brandished books, and clubs where the listeners brandished clubs."
He has even occasonally dropped references to the station in his books. In his novel 11-22-63, the character Jake saves most of the Dunning family and when he comes back to 2011 he looks up Ellen Dunning. He calls her and finds out she's a "jock for WKIT in Bangor, you know, a disk jockey?"
