I just checked on headphones. WMKI HD is actually in stereo.

I'm a little bummed that the unadvertised analog C-Quam AM
stereo feature on the Sangean is not wideband. It gets full
stereo separation on WJIB, but with the muddy, narrowband
fidelity of conventional AM mono receivers. I have to go
back to my mid-1980's Sony STR-AV490 to hear WJIB in full
wideband C-Quam AM stereo glory.
