     Historical note 
 In 1958, Roy White purchased WLEX ( Lexington ) radio on a seven-year agreement and operated the station as WBLG ( Bluegrass ).  WLEX-TV continued to operate a WLEX-FM radio station.  The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) began conferences on the television application for WBLG.  WBLG received a construction permit for a television transmitter in September, 1967, and began transmissions on May 28, 1968.  WBLG-TV and -Radio was sold to Star Broadcasting for 1.5 million in 1973.  WBLG-Radio was then purchased by Village Communications/The Village Companies.  In 1979, WBLG was sold to Wendell Triplett/Triplett Broadcasting Company, Bellefontaine, Ohio, who changed the call letters to WTKC ( Triplett Kentucky Country ).  At the same time that Village bought WBLG radio, it also bought WLEX-FM from the company that operated WLEX-TV.  Those call numbers were changed to WKQQ-FM, Lexington, Kentucky's first  album-oriented rock  station.  Sources:
