PROGRAM DIRECTOR

Hey, thanks for stopping by! I'm Brad Zima, and I am the Program Director, and Telephone Time host here at WIKB. I grew up in a small town near Green Bay called Oconto, WI. I started in radio while in college in Milwaukee, WI. After bouncing around to a couple different stations, moving my way up the ranks, I have landed here in Iron River. I love being interactive with listeners every day, and I love country music. When I am not in the studio, or at the station, you can find me up a tree with my bow, out in my boat, playing sports(football/basketball/golf), or strumming on my Martin acoustic. Give me a call on TT and say hi.

OFFICE MANAGER

I love to be out adventuring, learning and trying new things. I love to hunt and test my skills. I’m a very outgoing kind person.
