In 1922, an automobile dealer, looking for a way to help stir up interest in the radios he was selling to supplement his auto business, ... See more decided to start a radio station. It was the first commercial radio station in the state of Wisconsin. An application to broadcast was approved and KFIZ was born. There were no rigid federal restrictions about call letters at that time and KFIZ became one of the few stations east of the Mississippi River, beginning with the letter "K." The little third floor studio was tuned in regularly by area residents. They heard a few records, many local singers and musicians who "just dropped in." The owners operated the station at their own convenience, and it was often off the air by 6p.m. Since it began broadcast operations in 1922, News-Talk 1450 KFIZ has been one the Fond du Lac area depended on for news, weather, sports, and agri-business.
