Station was an invaluable asset to Milwaukee

Milwaukee – Supervisor Russell Stamper has issued the following statement after hearing about the program changes at 1290 WMCS-AM Talk Radio:

“A light has been turned out in the community. For more than 20 years, 1290 WMCS has been an invaluable asset to Milwaukee by providing a platform for the voice of intellect. Talk radio has been a source of enlightenment for its many listeners and promotes political awareness and community development.

“I am saddened to hear that 1290 WMCS, as we know it has made a business decision to change its format. Since its inception, I have enjoyed tuning into 1290 WMCS to hear quality conversation about local and national issues affecting our community. As a child, I remember accompanying my mother, the late Dr. Virginia Grant-Stamper, in the radio station as she hosted her spiritual enlightenment show.

“We have lost a valuable resource; however, it’s imperative that the dialog continues in our communities. We must maintain and financially support our local avenues of communication. I am going to truly miss 1290 WMCS and I want to thank their staff for their many years of positive service to the community.”
