Why Radio Milwaukee
Radio can be a “town square” for a community, a centerpiece of music, cultural and social happenings. It can also break down barriers and bring people together. However, radio in general has become increasingly corporate and generic as it moves away from local interests, personalities and community.
88Nine Radio Milwaukee believes that it is possible to inspire positive change in the community by presenting a unique blend of music and public affairs programming that raise the social awareness and engagement of listeners and on-line audiences.
