We asked, you answered and now we have a new show! WUWM will add On Point to our weekday lineup starting Monday, August 7 at 9 a.m. Thank you to everyone who voted and everyone who gave us feedback and comments over these nine weeks.

As you may have heard on the radio, The Takeaway is ending its production. This creates an exciting opportunity for the station to include you in our decision to choose the next program that will air weekdays at 9 a.m. on WUWM 89.7 FM - Milwaukee's NPR.

On Monday, June 5, WUWM will launch its Summer Sampler. This will run for nine weeks featuring three different shows. Here’s what you’ll hear:

 On Point, Think and A1 logos
