Radio Markets in and around Wisconsin, page 2

This page contains dial summaries for the principal metropolitan areas in Iowa. It provides current information on call letters, format, slogan, studio address, web site, and other items of interest. "Last monitored" gives the date of my most recent trip in or near the market during which I monitored all or most of the stations; changes I hear about subsequently are added to the site promptly. Street addresses (no P O Boxes) are in parentheses; when two or more stations share a studio location, the address appears with the station on the lowest frequency, and the other stations refer to that frequency--e.g., "(1060)." Addresses, taken mainly from station web sites, include the city only when it differs from the station's city of license. The city of license is given only when it differs from the city in the heading. These lists do not contain low-power FMs, FM translators, or low-power TV stations.

These are the markets summarized on this page. Click on a city to view its stations, and then use your "back" key to return to this list.
