On September 26, 1941, WISR 680-AM was the first commercial station to go on the air in Butler County, and the last to be granted a broadcast license before the FCC halted the licensing of any additional stations until after World War II. WISR has been locally owned from the very beginning, offering a mixture of news, talk, sports, and nostalgia music. It is also Butler County’s exclusive radio home to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Knoch High School sports.
Stay tuned all year long as we celebrate our 80th anniversary with lots of great events, contests, promotions and giveaways.
