See more the first few years of operation, PIRN's playlist rotation actually consisted of less than 25% Pokémon content. Towards the end of season one, PIRN featured its first true news segments with coverage of the 2001 Monona, WI ECSTS qualifier. PIRN got its first big break in 2001 with the interview of Wizards of the Coast Employee "Master Trainer" Michael Gills at GenCon 2001 in Milwaukee, WI. The interview helped give the station a great amount of exposure with the interview. Season two introduced a new feature called the Pokéblock, which consisted of nothing but Pokémon content. News coverage continued with the challenge series, including the Central Stadium Challenge in Rosemont, IL. Season 3 got off to a huge start with the 2002 World Championships in Seattle, WA. Steven was not able to go, but Jen Brazas served as field agent for four on-site reports. The rest of the season saw more contributions from Lunamew and GreatFox. It also brought some of the most devastating news to be leveled at the game: Wizards of the Coast's loss of the Pokémon TCG liscense and the transfer of power to Pokémon USA.
