Tonight in the 7PM WOOD-TV news, WION radio will be part of a report on how automakers are, in some cases, removing AM radio from vehicles, especially the EV’s the government is pushing down our throats. Joe LaFurgey and his cameraman joined the J and J midday show today and took some footage of how WE do things, and the main story was handled by our good friend and “Sister Staton” (by frequency) owner of WRDN, Durand Wisconsin who has been spearheading the effort to get the public involved in keeping AM in vehicles. Meet Brian (thanks to technology) and see a bit of WION tonight on WOOD-TV 8, and likely online at their site as well.


We’re gratefu to Joe for choosing WION and chatting with US about how we view the importance of  local  (AM) radio. It was a pleasure meeting him and having him and his cameraman in our studio.
