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.
Hey I’m Kristine DeVore and I’m the office manager here at WIKB. I am from
Milwaukee, WI. I have two wonderful crazy kids that are my world and a wonderful
loving supportive husband. 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. I enjoy working
at WIKB and I’m here to help and greet you with a smile.
