107.1 Frank FM – WRFK:
WRFK (107.1 FM, “Frank FM”) is a radio station licensed to Barre and serving central Vermont. Established in 1974, the station is owned by Jeffrey Shapiro’s Great Eastern Radio. WRFK airs a classic rock format, and is simulcast in the Champlain Valley on WWFK (also on 107.1 FM) in Plattsburgh West, New York. The transmitter is located off Websterville Road and the studios and offices are on Jacques Street.
The station signed on August 5, 1974 as WORK. It was originally owned by Robert Kimel, who also owned WSNO in Barre and WWSR AM-FM in St. Albans, and programmed an automated Top 40/Hot AC format known as “Hit Parade.” Kimel sold WORK and WSNO to Bull Moose Broadcasting in 1997; two years later, the stations were purchased by Vox Radio Group. Nassau Broadcasting Partners acquired most of Vox’s northern New England radio stations in 2004, and changed WORK’s format to classic hits on September 15, 2006.
