New Wisconsin Public Radio station WHAA/89.1 (Adams) has signed on carrying WPR's Ideas Network. The station uses 28.5kW/177m from a tower near Coloma, covering an area that had only fringe reception of Ideas Network AM stations during the day and no reception at night. WHAA has a rimshot signal to Wisconsin Rapids, Mauston, and Wisconsin Dells, with fringe coverage of Stevens Point. The Ideas Network features statewide talk shows and newscasts from WPR and NPR. Federal funding paid for 75 percent of the $431,000 cost of building the new station, with $55,000 in grants from the Mead Witter Foundation of Wisconsin Rapids and listener contributions covering the rest.
