Where Northeast Michigan Comes To Talk!

1480 AM & 106.9 FM
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, health, movie reviews, tech, animal care, military news, home improvement, auto repair and
general lifestyle programming crossing over from the strange to the serious with all the fun stuff in between!

Listen to WIOS during the 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 for the weekends!
Check out our programming schedule below!

Tawas City and East Tawas
is on the US-23 Heritage Route!

U.S. Route 23 was established in 1926 (the same year as U.S. Route 66) and now includes roadway south of Portsmouth, OH and winds through 8 states, but the original route passes through the Tawases on the way to its terminus in Mackinaw City.  Many tourists discover the pleasant little towns of East Tawas and Tawas City on their way north.  Many decide not to go any further north, just because our area is closer to home and offer's a similar lakeside experience to the straits area at a more affordable price for families.  We hope you'll discover the Tawas area and make it your new summertime and wintertime destination.  And take the Heritage Route 23 on your way and discover the natural beauty of our Huron coast.

Visit the beautiful
Tawas area!

Streaming Technical: The audio stream is broadcast 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 and is enhanced for crisper highs and deeper lows on older recordings where that range had been previously been restricted.  Our transmitter bandwidth complies with NRSC technical standards and the transmitted audio frequency response is 20Hz-10kHz.  Rolloff occurs at the specified NRSC-G100-A rate with the total bandwidth cutoff ending at 11.5kHz well within the limits of the FCC analog AM mask.  Older receivers without sharp IF cutoff response curves can experience higher fidelity performance.  Look for older receivers with the AMAX logo or using vacuum tubes (valves) to assure best performance.
