WRIT HD-2 has ran the "Real Oldies" format since 2009. At first, it was the Premium Choice log (Music, Voice Tracks, etc) fed to the station locally with WOKY's 2007-2008-era Mighty 92 imaging, along with weather and some promos for the main station.

About a year or two ago, iHeartMedia started switching HD-2 channels to a direct (raw) simulcast of their national streams. Real Oldies being one of them. Every iHeartradio stream, whether it's Real Oldies, Foggy Mountain (Classic Country), the Macy's MStyle Radio, the 24/7 Delilah stream, the artist "Guest DJ" channels, the "Build-A-Bear Workshop Radio" they just launched, they all have an HD-2 channel somewhere in the country attached to them. This saves on streaming costs.

In 95.7 HD-2's case, they simply switched from feeding it locally with the Real Oldies music log and WOKY imaging to simply simulcasting the Real Oldies internet stream. You hear a quick Legal ID at the top of the hour on the stream, which you can listen to here:

In Madison, WIBA HD-2 simulcasts "reCovered Radio" (An iHeartradio stream) and WZEE HD-2 simulcasts Classical Highlights (the iHeartradio Classical Music stream) WMAD HD-2 simulcasts "Coffee Shop Radio"
