WISN 1130 AM has been on the air since 1922, although not always with those call letters. In an interesting twist, the license was granted to the local newspaper, the Wisconsin News and the Milwaukee School of Engineering. Initially, both entities were programming the station, however, by about 1925, the newspaper was responsible for programming and the engineering school was responsible for technical operations.

In 1941, the station increased power from 1,000 watts to 5,000 watts and added night time service.
