Well we've always had Wisconsin's Morning News.

A lot of radio stations use "Wisconsin's" in their name. Such as WBCV in Wausau "Wisconsin's Big Cheese 107-9"

As for signal coverage, from it's transmitter site in Union Grove (Just north of the Racine/Kenosha county line) it booms 50kw north into Wisconsin.

It's daytime service (Grade A) coverage pattern runs from just north of Chicago to just north of Green Bay. West out to Madison.

Door County is on the fringe, as is anywhere west of Madison. I don't think you can get it in Eau Claire or very well in Wausau.

At night, the power drops and it gets more directional. The general Milwaukee area straight up to Green Bay is where the grade a service area is. It depends mostly on your radio.

The transmitter is 14 miles from me. I get some skywave issues, because it's directional away from the SW and SE as well as the NW and NE. I'm in a near miss from the directional pattern at night where I am. But it comes in fine. If I was any further to the south and east, I'd probably lose it because of the null to the SE.

Elsewhere in Kenosha and Racine Counties, it seems ok. Depending on where you are. It also has a strong foot print into Lake County, Illinois.
