Civic Media has also expanded its flagship Liberal Talk format to two more of its stations. Upon the close of its purchase of Fruit Broadcasting’s Standards 1450 WRCO/107.7 W299CD and Country 100.9 WRCO-FM Richland Center last week, the company relaunched WRCO/W299CD as “News From The Center” under new WRCE call letters.

The Time Brokerage Agreement of Silent 1260 WXCE Amery ahead of the purchase of it, Country “Thunder 95.7” WDMO Baldwin and 910 WCBN Hayward sees that station relaunch as “Lake Air Radio“.
