It probably comes as no surprise to WKNC 88.1 FM's Raleigh-Durham fan base that the station received its third consecutive nomination as "Biggest Champion of the Local Scene" in College Music Journal's College Radio Awards. WKNC alumnae Bri Aab, who served as the station's 2013-2014 General Manager and now works as a promoter for Team Clermont, was also nominated for Promoter of the Year.

Canto de Lobos, a Spanish-language music program that airs Sundays at 3 p.m. on WKNC 88.1 FM, was featured on WUVC Univision 40, North Carolina's first Spanish-language television station. Created in 2014 by Diego Cancel, a senior in environmental technology, the show is co-hosted by Cancel and Marc Celestini, a senior in computer and electrical engineering. The show's title translates as "song of wolves" in honor of NC State's mascot the wolfpack.
