Where Northeast Michigan Comes To Talk!

AM 1480
is unique for a talk radio station!
How?  Most radio stations continue their politically charged
talk radio lineup all weekend with re-hashed "best-of" shows from nationally popular
syndicated radio hosts.  We bargained with our programming
providers so we were free to broadcast lighter, apolitical fare for our weekends!
Like old time radio dramas, travel, food, military news, home improvement and
general lifestyle programming crossing over from the strange to the serious
with all the fun stuff in between!
Listen to WIOS weekends, and you'll agree, it's different and we can keep your
interest all day long.  For the life-long learner or the curious, WIOS has
talk radio programming for any type of listener on the weekends!
Check out our programming schedule below!

Streaming Technical: The audio stream is broadcast in monophonically direct from our AM modulation monitor, you are hearing the same signal that is broadcast over the air (audio processing included). If you have an exceptionally good AM receiver with full 10kHz IF bandwidth, you will experience a hi-fidelity frequency response closely approximating that of the streaming service. WIOS's music is digitally "cleaned" and equalized to provide removal of most analog noise, clicks and pops along with crisper highs and deeper lows on older recordings where that range had been previously restricted.
