Secondary Audio Program (SAP)

I’m watching your TV station but hearing something entirely different...the sound doesn’t match the picture!

Most cable boxes and satellite receivers have a Audio setup option that you should find in the menu using your remote.

Make sure your TV is on WHKY-TV.

Select “English” so the sound matches the picture.

Select “Spanish” to hear WHKY TalkRadio audio while still viewing WHKY-TV. Note: the radio feed is not in Spanish, it is just labeled that way to be able to find it.

WHKY-TV provides audio from our co-owned Radio Station WHKY (AM 1290) on our TV Secondary Audio Program (SAP) channel (the “Spanish” audio selection).  This allows listeners the opportunity to hear many of our Radio Station’s local programs, sporting events and newscast.


If you are receiving WHKY-TV 14.1 over the air, not on cable or satellite, you will need to change the audio on your TV set.

Activating or deactivating the SAP is done on most television sets, and cable/satellite boxes through a menu using the remote control. Every unit is different, so the best way to do that is to follow the instructions in your owner's manual.  But if you don't have the owner's manual that came with your TV, or cable/satellite box anymore, you can still change the settings for the SAP if you have your remote control. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Before trying to change the SAP, be sure you're controlling your TV set with that remote, and not the cable/satellite box controller. Likewise if you are controlling the cable/satellite box use the controller that was provided for that box.
  • Some remote controllers have a button on them labeled "SAP", or "Audio Select".  Try pressing this button in succession to cycle through the various audio modes.
  • If there is no button on the remote control, press the "MENU" button to bring up your television's on-screen menu and look for options like "Setup", "Audio Setup", or "Audio" to find the selections available for MTS, or SAP.

If you don't have your remote control, or your owner's manual, contact the store where you purchased your television. Many times they can help with obtaining another operation manual, or finding a universal remote control that will work with your television. If you have a cable, or satellite box you can visit the provided customer web site for your service. These services provide instructions for changing language on the provided boxes.
