America’s Test Kitchen Radio joins Murray State University’s public radio service, 91.3 WKMS, Sundays at 6 a.m., replacing On Being. Christopher Kimball hosts the new cooking program for radio that takes you inside the test kitchen for food tastings, equipment ratings, chef profiles, and a call-in segment. 

There will be a special re-broadcast of ATK Radio’s “Blind Wine: The Truth Behind Expert Wine Tastings” on Tuesday, January 17 at noon to replace Kentucky Tonight for one time only. 

Kimball has hosted the popular syndicated PBS cooking show America’s Test Kitchen on television for 12 seasons. The new radio program ATK Radio debuts this year as a production of WGBH-FM in Boston. It follows the design of the television show in that some segments are recorded in the test kitchen of Cook’s Illustratedmagazine, where Kimball is the founder and editor. He is also the author of numerous books including The Cook's Bible.

Upcoming weekly broadcasts of ATK Radio on WKMS include a tribute to America’s favorite food star Julia Child, uncovering the truth about olive oil, and what makes a good cup of coffee. It’s not uncommon for listeners to discover new recipes or new ways to use basic ingredients while learning from Kimball and his staff.   

WKMS operates with funding from individuals, underwriters, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and Murray State University.
