WTMJ Expands What’s On Tap hosted by Sandy Maxx, Rounding Out New Programming Lineup


By - May 14th, 2024 08:29 am

What’s on Tap launched in November of 2023 with a focus on arts, culture, and creativity around Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin. The show has served as a regular showcase for community organizations including the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts and Milwaukee Film and featured interviews with filmmakers David Zucker and John Ridley.

“Along with discovering interesting stories ranging from crafting specialty beers to going behind the scenes of a Bob Uecker documentary, I’m learning there is a genuine appetite for positive news,” Sandy says. “I’m thrilled have more time to share stories and connect people with what is happening culturally and creatively in our state.”

“As WTMJ continues its evolution as a news and information station, highlighting arts and culture has become a major part of what we do,” says Mike Spaulding, Assistant Program Director for 620 WTMJ. “Milwaukee and southeast Wisconsin regularly punches above its weight when it comes to live entertainment, and we are lucky to have someone like Sandy leading the charge.”

The expansion of What’s On Tap rounds out a roster overhaul on the station that debuted in February. In addition to a shift in roles for Steve Scaffidi, Greg Matzek & Brian Noonan, WTMJ added veteran journalists Jessica Tighe & Julia Fello, radio and social media personality Kristin Brey, and civic leader Jeff Sherman to its daily lineup.

What’s On Tap will air from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays on WTMJ and will also stream live on WTMJ’s YouTube channel.
