WISN is one of three flagship stations of Hearst Television and the second-oldest television station to remain with the company in all of its various iterations.

History

WISN first signed on the air on October 27, with the call letters WTVW and branded itself as Wisconsin's TeleVision Window. By it had changed to WISN, after being bought by the Hearst Corporation, which transferred the call letters from its radio station, WISN (AM). The former WTVW calls are now used on the Fox affiliate on channel 7 in Evansville, Indiana. The station was originally affiliated with both ABC and DuMont.[1] When DuMont ceased operations in , WISN-TV was left with just ABC.

WTVW's transmitter building was built under a tent, as rains threatened to delay construction. After the building was finished, a second tent was erected, and used for live automobile commercials, until it collapsed one day in early

In , WISN-TV became the flagship of the short-lived local Badger Television Network, a three-station television network in Wisconsin. The other two stations were WFRV-TV (Green Bay channel 5), and WKOW-TV (Madison channel 27).[1] Programs broadcast by the network included Homemaker's Holiday, a quiz show hosted by Charlie Hanson; Good Housekeeping, hosted by Trudy Beilfuss using the name of the Hearst magazine of the same name; and Pretzel Party, a variety program originally hosted by Larry Clark. All three programs originated from WISN-TV's studios. During March , the network also aired Senate Investigating Committee hearings during late-night hours. The Badger Network was launched in January and ceased operations on August 8 of that year.[1]

In , WISN would undergo an affiliation switch; CBS, then carried by WITI (channel 6, now a Fox affiliate), desired to affiliate with WISN, since the station's radio stations were already affiliated with the network. As a result, WISN and WITI swapped affiliations on April 2, During that tenure, WISN cleared most of the CBS shows, even though by the early s it would drop "Search for Tomorrow" so it could expand its talk show "Dialing for Dollars" in the daytime and pre-empt or delay several prime-time programs for Marquette University and Milwaukee Bucks basketball games.

Hearst kept WISN-TV and WISN (AM) in after it sold the Milwaukee Sentinel to Journal Communications that year (owners of the Milwaukee Journal), due to Journal already owning WTMJ-TV (channel 4) and WTMJ (AM) ().

The switch was reversed in WITI's owner at the time, Storer Broadcasting, had a bitter relationship with ABC, stemming from the network's departure from Storer's San Diego UHF station, KCST (channel 39), a station the network was forced de facto to affiliate with after KCST fought successfully to have ABC affiliation stripped from Tijuana, Mexico-based XETV (channel 6). At the same time, Storer had a strong relationship with CBS in other markets where it owned stations. Hence, it dropped ABC from WITI to take the CBS affiliation from WISN. Without hesitation, WISN aligned with ABC again, by then the top network in the country, and the home network of Milwaukee-set sitcoms Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley, which were the top two A.C. Nielsen-rated programs at the time of the exchange (ironically, the rights to the Happy Days franchise are now owned by CBS). WISN even used Happy Days character Arthur Fonzerelli to herald its return to ABC with the slogan "Happy Days are Here Again" in ad and print campaigns leading up to the switch, which occurred on Sunday, March 27, at 6 p.m. CT after the conclusion of the United Cerebral Palsy Telethon. To this day, WISN is one of ABC's most successful affiliates, and bills itself thus in promotions.

WISN was the first commercial station in the market to produce an HDTV broadcast, airing the Summerfest "Big Bang" fireworks show in the format on June 29, [2] Milwaukee Public Television assisted WISN in the production of the broadcast, and have continued to do so each year since, with additional help from sister stations KCRA and WCVB in later years.

Former sister radio stations WISN () and WRNW (formerly WLTQ/WQBW, ) are now owned by Clear Channel, and all ties between the stations and Channel 12 were severed as of July 27, , when a weather/news carriage agreement began with WITI (Channel 6) at the end of a longtime agreement with WISN to provide forecasts to Clear Channel's six local stations.[3] After the expiration of that deal, WISN-TV now provides news, weather and sports content to the five-station Milwaukee cluster (WKLH, WHQG, WJMR, WJYI, and WZBK) of Saga Communications.[4] This has an effect of having WISN-TV's news staff disclaim on-air and through their social networking channels that their station has no connections with WISN radio's conservative talk format and only holds the same calls, a point of contention and confusion during events such as live shots at the Wisconsin State Capitol for the state budget debate [5].

Digital television

As part of the analog television shutdown and digital conversion, WISN-TV shut down its analog transmitter at a.m. on June 12, coming out of a Good Morning America local news brief with a station history narrated by Jerry Taff, followed by a still of digital transition information staying on the air until 12 noon, and conitnued to broadcast on its pre-transition digital channel 34, and immediately took the WISN-TV calls from the former analog channel.[6][7] However, through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display WISN's virtual channel as The signal space for channel 12 was subsequently re-used by CBS for owned-and-operated WBBM-TV in Chicago for its digital signal.

On May 17, , WISN-TV filed an application to upgrade its digital transmitter to a power level of 1 million watts, mainly to place the station's digital antenna at the taller height of the dormant analog antenna, which would be replaced by a new digital unit.[8] The analog antenna was removed in September , and the digital antenna was activated from the new placement in early October

Programming

Channel 12 clears all of the ABC schedule, and until it was dropped by ABC on August 28, , it preempted ABC Kids airings of the Power Rangers series which had been done since September due to lack of E/I content, as have all Hearst ABC stations; the station unusually aired Kim Possible and Power Rangers SPD early Monday mornings before World News Now in the season for the same reason. Since July 31, due to the extension of its weekend morning newscasts, WISN split up the ABC Kids lineup over the course of two days, with the regular Saturday block airing from a.m. and an additional hour on Sundays from 11 a.m.-noon.

The station airs most of the highest-rated programs in syndication and because of this usually has had very light schedule turnover each fall for the last few years, with Live with Regis and Kelly after Good Morning America, The Nate Berkus Show before the ABC soap opera lineup, and Dr. Phil and Oprah paired up in mid-afternoons together. Entertainment Tonight airs before primetime. Nightline and Jimmy Kimmel Live are delayed a half-hour to facilitate WISN's hour-long newscast. Channel 12's local and select ABC programming is also available on Time Warner Cable's "Start Over" service, allowing viewing of a program after it has already started.

Channel 12 also airs Green Bay Packers Monday Night Football games originating on ESPN [9] simulcasting the p ESPNHD feed. The same arrangement was in place for the NFL Network game against the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium the Thursday after Thanksgiving, and the station also airs the Donald Driver-hosted Inside the Huddle from Fox affiliate WLUK-TV (channel 11) in Green Bay. ESPN is 20% owned by Hearst, owners of Channel

On September 8, , Channel 12 became the first Milwaukee station to air non-network syndicated HD programming daily, and now carries all of their weekday syndicated programming in the format.. Later in the year, the station became the first in the market with HD tape-delay and character generator capabilities.

WISN makes the claim based on Nielsen Media Research numbers that it is among the top-rated ABC affiliates in the nation (an honor that was shared with fellow ABC station WPTA-TV (channel 21) in Fort Wayne, IN), which is based on market size and household ratings percentages.[10] In fact, the three highest-rated ABC affiliates in the nation are all Hearst stations (WISN, plus KOCO (channel 5) in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and KMBC (channel 9) in Kansas City, Missouri). "One of America's Leading ABC Stations" had been the station's slogan until September 24, , when in conjunction with ABC's new image campaign, Channel 12 launched the new "Start here" slogan, which signified both Channel 12's broadcast channel and the station's website, which was relaunched in August to move away from Hearst Argyle's "LocalChannel" strategy to focus on WISN's local content and emphasize the station's call letters in the web address. The top-rated station claim returned in late to being voiced out.

Notable programming

  • In , WISN launched the "Hello Milwaukee" promos, praising the City of Milwaukee through a montage of videos and a song specially commissioned and written for WISN by Frank Gari.
  • WISN was the flagship station for the Wisconsin Lottery from the agency's inception in , playing host to the state lottery drawings and the weekly Wisconsin Lottery Money Game game show (later known as The Super Money Game Show). The lottery discontinued theMoney Game at the end of due to budget cuts, and televised drawings at the same time, moving the drawings to the state lottery offices in Madison. WISN continues to announce the lottery numbers on-screen after being drawn in a bottom-screen ticker duringEntertainment Tonight (on Saturday, during the station's pm newscast and Sunday's pm ABC programming) and during the pm newscast, and also broadcasts most Powerball drawings with a jackpot over $,, (WMLW (Channel 41) airs all Powerball drawings).

News operation

Currently, WISN-TV broadcasts a total of 31½ hours of local news per week (with 4½ hours each weekday, 4½ hours on Saturdays and Sundays); unlike most ABC affiliates in the Central and Mountain time zones, WISN does not carry a newscast in the weekday midday timeslot, though it offers a lunchtime news capsule segment on their website. WISN has added more newscasts to its schedule since , and is unusual in programming hour-long newscasts Saturday at 6 p.m., and Sunday at 10 p.m. On July 30, , WISN, like most of its Hearst-owned ABC affiliate sister stations did on that date, added a one-hour extension of its weekend morning newscast from a.m., which competes directly against the weekend morning newscast on NBC affiliate WTMJ-TV (channel 4). On September 6, WISN expanded its weekday morning newscast to 2½ hours, now airing from a.m.[11]

Longtime anchor Jerry Taff retired in May , and WISN's newscasts began to climb in the ratings. It success stems from hiring popular local anchors and reporters released from other stations, a stronger ABC schedule, and a period of change at rival WTMJ due to weaker NBC ratings and newsroom changes. The station's biggest acquisition from WTMJ was the dean of Milwaukee television journalism, Mike Gousha in late , a year after he retired as the anchor of WTMJ's main newscasts in order to focus on a new position as a distinguished fellow in law and public policy at Marquette University.[12] Gousha currently analyzes political events for the station with other political experts, and hosts UpFront with Mike Gousha, a Sunday morning program which is a mix of the interview segments familiar to viewers of his former WTMJ program Sunday Night, and local political analysis.[13] The show has been syndicated to other stations statewide by Hearst, and in August all of the stations involved (along with MPTV, which provided technical assistance with HD production) broadcast a Gousha-moderated forum for the Republican candidates for Wisconsin governor called the " UpFront Town Hall Challenge" from Marquette's new law building, which was purposefully structured to avoid classification as a traditional debate where either candidate could use the format to "sell" themselves. The format was repeated in October between the Democratic and Republican nominees for governor and US Senate.

Although Hearst-owned stations in several other markets broadcast local news in HD, it is currently unknown if and when WISN will launch newscasts in this format, and the station has deliberately implemented graphical elements such as weather banners, news tickers and logo bugs slowly as it has learned from the launches of WTMJ and WITI's operations in the format, with the only HD segments as of airing during newscasts on the day of the Summerfest "Big Bang" fireworks show in late June, usually scenic and human interest pieces, along with MPTV co-productions.

On April 21, , the station transitioned to the Hearst HD graphics package and a permanent pillarbox with the station logo in the left pillar and calls in the right for standard definition programming,[14] but has not of yet broadcast its newscasts in high definition. In March the station unveiled optimized weather graphics to allow the station to continue to show programming in HD rather than force a downscale to a modified mode where the program was displayed in (to much viewer complaint over the years, especially with ABC primetime programming), with the weather warnings taking up the remainder of the screen. On October 10, , WISN-TV converted their newscast presentation to widescreen, though remaining in standard definition for all aspects for the time being, and also removing the decorative pillarboxes.

On January 24, , WISN-TV expanded its 10 p.m. newscast to one hour in length, becoming the third Hearst-owned station with an hour-long late local newscast (Albuquerque sister station KOAT and Honolulu sister station KITV also carry hour-long newscasts after ABC primetime).[15] A consequence of this was WISN choosing to moving longtime p.m. slotholder Access Hollywood to a.m., and program producer NBC Universal Television Distribution asking for an early release from their contract so that the show could move to p.m. on WTMJ as of April 11, [16]

WISN also hosts its video stories on YouTube as part of a content agreement between Hearst-Argyle and YouTube, and in April unveiled an iPhone application in the iTunes App Store.[17] The station's website is the only Milwaukee station website currently offering in-story commenting features.

Ratings

According to the local Nielsen ratings for May , WISN-TV was the #1 market station from sign-on to sign-off for the fifth consecutive year with a rating for the month – the only station to show an increase in viewership for the broadcast day. In local news, WISN won first place in weekday and weekend morning news, and its 10 p.m. newscast showed a viewership increase and remained the #1 late newscast in the Milwaukee area. The early evening newscasts ranked #1, with a share for the 5 p.m. newscast, and a share for the 6 p.m. newscast; the station also ranked #1 in primetime for the May sweeps period, averaging a rating.[18]

For July , WISN was #1 among the area's early evening newscasts with the 5 p.m. showing a 10% increase in viewers over the same time in to lead with a rating; the station's 6 p.m. newscast ratings increased 26% with a rating share. The station was also #1 among weekday and weekend morning news. The 10 p.m. newscast also grew 25% to an share despite transmitter problems due to flooding on July 22, though the station earned a share to win the 10 p.m. slot that night despite only 40% of homes in the market receiving WISN's signal that evening.[19]

Logos

WISN is one of a few select stations which uses permanent digital logo bugs of its station logo in all of its programming (excepting paid programming), including ABC network programs, which varies with presentation style. The newer style logo with the "12" logo tilted to the left in a box is used for syndicated programming in a larger form, while being placed next to the ABC logo in a smaller form in entertainment programming. The original '12' logo in straight form is utilized for both ABC Kids and ABC News programs for readability purposes. On days when WISN is broadcasting a Packers MNF game, the logo is colored gold inside a green box, denoting the team's colors.

WISN-TV

ABC affiliate in Milwaukee

Television station in Wisconsin, United States

WISN-TV, virtual channel 12 (UHFdigital channel 28), is an ABC-affiliatedtelevision stationlicensed to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States. Owned by the Hearst Television subsidiary of New York City-based Hearst Communications, it is the second-oldest television station to remain with the company in all of its various iterations behind WBAL-TV in Baltimore. WISN-TV's studios are located on North 19th Street on the west end of the Marquette University campus, and its transmitter is located at Lincoln Park in the northeastern part of Milwaukee (next to the Weigel Broadcasting tower, which is used by CBS affiliate WDJT-TV, channel 58, and its sister stations).

History[edit]

First tenure with ABC[edit]

The station first signed on the air on October 27, , as WTVW (for its on-air slogan "Wisconsin's TeleVision Window"). WTVW's transmitter building was built under a tent, as rain had threatened to delay construction. After the building was finished, a second tent was erected, and used for live automobile commercials, until it collapsed one day in early In early , the station was purchased by the Hearst Corporation, publishers of The Milwaukee Sentinel and owners of WISN radio ( AM); the new owners changed channel 12's call letters to WISN-TV, after its radio sister (whose calls were derived from now-defunct newspaper The Wisconsin News, which merged with the Sentinel 15 years prior to its sign-on;[1] the WTVW calls are now used by the CW-affiliated station in Evansville, Indiana). The station originally operated as a primary ABC affiliate with a secondary DuMont affiliation.[2] WISN-TV lost the DuMont affiliation when that network ceased operations in , leaving it exclusively with ABC.

In January , WISN-TV became the flagship station of the Badger Television Network, a three-station network serving Wisconsin that also included WFRV-TV in Green Bay and WKOW-TV in Madison.[2] Programs broadcast by the network included Homemaker's Holiday, a quiz show hosted by Charlie Hanson; Good Housekeeping, hosted by Trudy Beilfuss titled after the Hearst magazine of the same name; and Pretzel Party, a variety program originally hosted by Larry Clark. All three programs originated from WISN-TV's studios. During March , the network also aired Senate Investigation Committee hearings during late-night hours. The network ceased operations on August 8, [2] WISN-TV and WISN radio would gain an FM radio sister when Hearst signed on WISN-FM (, now WRNW) in

Switch to CBS[edit]

In , CBS decided to affiliate with WISN-TV, as its sister radio station had been a longtime affiliate of the CBS Radio Network. As a result, Storer Broadcasting-owned WITI-TV (channel 6) and WISN swapped networks: channel 12 switched its affiliation to CBS and channel 6 became an ABC affiliate on April 2, [3] The final ABC network program to air on WISN before it joined CBS was an edition of the Fight of the Week with boxers Benny Paret and Emile Griffith; it ran the evening before the switch at &#;p.m. Central Time.[4]

During channel 12's time with CBS, it served as the default home station for the NFL's Green Bay Packers for the Milwaukee market, and airing the team's first twoSuper Bowl appearances (also the first two Super Bowl games in NFL history); it was succeeded and preceded in this stead by WITI.

Hearst sold the Milwaukee Sentinel to Journal Publishing (the publishers of the Milwaukee Journal) in , retaining WISN-TV and WISN radio. The Journal also competed with the Sentinel (both of which were eventually consolidated into the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in ) in broadcasting as owners of WTMJ radio ( AM) and WTMJ-TV (channel 4), which Journal operated until April 1, , when Journal and E. W. Scripps Company merged and split their assets into the broadcast-specific Scripps company, and publishing operations into the short-lived Journal Media Group, which merged only a year later into Gannett.

WISN-TV's main logo since the switch to ABC was announced in , used solely for news imaging from to It returned into use as the main logo on all programming on September 17, , paired with the WISN calls to the left in Hearst's trademark Bank Gothic font, which has been used by the station since for various elements. The ABC circle logo is added to the station-generated bug for syndicated programming.

WISN's 'contemporary 12' logo, used from as the station ID at the start of its newscasts, entertainment programming, and as the logo bug used during ABC network programs. Slowly fading from use after the station's September re-imaging.

Second tenure with ABC[edit]

On September 26, , CBS announced it was moving its Milwaukee affiliation back to WITI-TV.[5] Storer Broadcasting had much better relations with CBS than it reportedly had with ABC; weeks earlier, ABC opted to drop Storer's San Diego station KCST-TV from the network after a four-year dispute stemming from KCST's successful battle to strip that market's ABC affiliation from XETV-TV in nearby Tijuana, Mexico. Meanwhile, ABC had become the top-rated television network in the United States, thanks in large part to two Milwaukee-set sitcoms: Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley. WISN-TV and ABC agreed to a new affiliation contract about a month later;[6] the two stations swapped networks once again on March 27, ; the final CBS program to air on channel 12 was an episode of The Carol Burnett Show with guest Ken Berry, which aired at &#;p.m. Central Time on the night before the station rejoined ABC (the station also aired the United Cerebral Palsy Telethon ahead of its return to ABC at &#;p.m. that Sunday evening).[7] WISN even used Happy Days star Henry Winkler (in character as Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli) to herald its return to ABC with the slogan "Happy Days are Here Again" in on-air and print campaigns leading up to the switch. To this day, WISN-TV has been one of ABC's most successful affiliates, and bills itself as such in its own promotions.

Around the same time, the station was the first which utilized newscast composer Frank Gari's "Hello News" package, which included an imaging song individualized to each market's city; in this case "Hello Milwaukee", which remains well-remembered and remains used in various ways by WISN-TV to the present day, and was cited as one of the factors in driving viewers to the station in the late s and allowing it to be competitive.[8]

For most of its years with ABC, the station did not include the network's logo next to theirs, branding solely with the channel number and/or call letters vocally and visually (outside of network-created radio promos which listed the station as "12 ABC") until , when the network began to contractually require the ABC logo be included with any affiliate's logo redesign. In November , the station unveiled their current logo with the call letters beneath the long-used "12" logo form and the ABC logo on the right side of the "12" number mark, the first with the ABC logo blended in for all uses, including for news and entertainment programming, and ending a long run where the station's call letters were rendered in Bank Gothic font. Vocally, the station remains "WISN 12". The station is among the few in the nation which has their logo in a transparent bug at all times, including ABC network and news programming, though not during commercial breaks or paid programming.

Channel 12 was the first commercial station in the market to produce a high-definition broadcast, airing the Summerfest "Big Bang" fireworks show in HD on June 29, [9]Milwaukee Public Television assisted WISN-TV in the production of the broadcast, and have continued to do so each year since, with additional help from sister stations in Sacramento and Boston in later years.

Hearst sold WISN radio and what by then became WLTQ to Clear Channel Communications in , and the third floor WLTQ/WISN radio studios were vacated in after their move to the expanded WOKY facility in Greenfield. All ties between WISN-TV and its former sister radio stations were severed when a longtime agreement with channel 12 to provide forecasts for WISN (AM) and the then-WQBW (now WRNW) and four others within Clear Channel's Milwaukee radio cluster ended on July 27, (though WRNW continues to transmit from WISN-TV's tower), as WITI began its own weather/news content agreement with the stations.[10] WISN-TV then began a news content agreement with Saga Communications for its five area radio stations (WKLH, WHQG, WJMR-FM, WJYI and WNRG-FM),[11] along with providing weather forecasts to WGXI in Plymouth. Due to the now separate ownership of the two stations, WISN-TV's news staff disclaim both on-air and through their social networking channels that the station has no connections with WISN radio's conservative talk format other than sharing the same call letters, a point of contention and confusion during events such as live shots at the Wisconsin State Capitol for the state budget debate.[12]

In February , the station added an SAP audio channel, allowing the station to carry ABC programming featuring audio description or a Spanish-languagedub, and complying with the FCC's requirements to offer audio description.

On April 30, , the station added a third subchannel carrying Shop LC as part of a broader channel carriage agreement between that network's owners and Hearst. A fourth subchannel carrying programming from theGrio launched at the end of September of the same year, though it is mapped to rather than (which does not currently exist).[13]

Summer Time Warner Cable carriage dispute[edit]

As Hearst and Time Warner Cable entered into a retransmission consent dispute that resulted in Hearst's stations being removed from TWC's systems in certain markets on July 10, , WISN was not immediately removed from its Milwaukee area systems in an eleventh hour announcement, as the direct fiber connection between WISN and TWC is also provided by the cable provider to Charter Communications (which serves outer portions of the market such as western Waukesha County and most of Washington, Fond du Lac and Sheboygan Counties) under a side agreement between the providers which TWC and Hearst were contractually obligated to honor.[14] It was the only Hearst station to remain on TWC during the dispute, but with both Start Over video on demand and the ability to record station programming to TWC DVRs completely removed.[15] Charter then tried to pursue a different method of transmitting WISN's signal to remove itself as an intermediary from the dispute,[16] and was able to make the arrangements by July 12,[17] allowing WISN's removal from Time Warner Cable one day later, with WISN's SD and HD channel slots replaced with Hallmark Movie Channel. The dispute was resolved on July 19, returning the station to TWC's systems that evening.

Digital television[edit]

Digital channels[edit]

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

WISN-TV shut down its analog signal, over VHF channel 12, at &#;a.m. on June 12, (the transition was led by a retrospective on the station's history narrated by former longtime anchor Jerry Taff, followed by a still of digital transition information that remained until noon, when its analog transmitter was permanently shut down). The station's digital signal continued to broadcast on its pre-transition UHF channel [19][20] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former VHF analog channel The channel 12 frequency was subsequently used as the post-transition digital signal of WBBM-TV in Chicago.

On May 17, , WISN-TV filed an application to upgrade its digital transmitter's power to 1 megawatt, mainly to place the station's digital antenna at the taller height of the dormant analog antenna, which would be replaced by a new digital unit.[21] The analog antenna was removed in September , and the digital antenna was activated from the new placement in early October

Programming[edit]

Syndicated programming currently broadcast on WISN includes The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Rachael Ray, The Dr. Oz Show, Tamron Hall, Entertainment Tonight and Live with Kelly and Ryan.

Sports programming[edit]

WISN airs any Milwaukee Bucks games that are selected to be broadcast on the NBA on ABC; this included the team's victory in the NBA Finals, the team's and the city's first championship in 50 years. The station also carries Monday Night Football games featuring the Green Bay Packers by virtue of Hearst's 20% ownership of ESPN.

News operation[edit]

WISN-TV presently broadcasts 34 hours of locally produced newscasts each week (with five hours each weekday and 4½ hours each on Saturdays and Sundays); WISN is one of the few Hearst-owned stations that carries an hour-long midday newscast. The station utilizes two weather radars as part of its "Doppler 12 Radar Network", using radar sites based at the National Weather Service forecast office in Sullivan, and atop Froedtert's Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls, which is operated by the station. It is the only Milwaukee station to have a helicopter for newsgathering.

Longtime anchor Jerry Taff retired in May , as WISN's newscasts began to climb in the ratings. Its success stems from hiring popular local anchors and reporters released from other stations, a stronger ABC schedule, and a period of change at rival WTMJ-TV due to NBC's weaker ratings and changes in its newsroom staff. The station's biggest hire came when longtime WTMJ anchor Mike Gousha joined channel 12 in , a year after he retired as WTMJ's evening news anchor in order to focus on his new position as a distinguished fellow in law and public policy at Marquette University.[22] Gousha served as a political analyst for WISN, and hosted the Sunday morning program UpFront with Mike Gousha, which is a mix of the interview segments familiar to viewers of his former WTMJ program Sunday Night, and local political analysis.[23] Hearst syndicated the show to other stations statewide, and in August all of the stations involved (along with Milwaukee Public Television, which provided technical assistance with HD production) broadcast a Gousha-moderated forum for the Wisconsin Republicangubernatorial candidates called the UpFront Town Hall Challenge from Marquette's new law building, which was purposefully structured to avoid classification as a traditional debate where either candidate could use the format to "sell" themselves. The format was repeated in October between the Democratic and Republican nominees for governor and U.S. Senate.

WISN has gradually expanded its newscast schedule since , and is unusual in programming hour-long newscasts, starting that year with a Sunday at 10 p.m. broadcast and for a time, an hour-long Saturday 6 p.m. newscast (the &#;p.m. half-hour currently features either paid programming, Project Pitch It [a local version of ABC's Shark Tank, which is syndicated to stations throughout Wisconsin] or 12 Sports Saturday). On July 30, , WISN, like most of its ABC-affiliated sister stations under Hearst did on that date, added a one-hour extension of its weekend morning newscast from 8 to 9&#;a.m. On September 6, , WISN expanded its weekday morning newscast a half-hour early to &#;a.m., extending the program to 2+1&#;2 hours.[24]

On April 21, , the station began using full-time pillarboxing with the station logo and callsign on the respective sides of the screen for newscasts and other standard-definition programming.[25] Afterwards, the station began to slowly implement graphical elements; in March , WISN-TV unveiled optimized weather alert graphics to allow programs to continue to be shown in HD rather than force a downscale to a modified mode in which the program was displayed in (to much viewer complaint over the years, especially with ABC prime time programming), with the weather warnings taking up the remainder of the screen. News tickers and logo bugs were also later upgraded; the only HD news segments until late June aired on its newscasts the day of the Summerfest "Big Bang" fireworks show, usually scenic and human interest pieces, along with Milwaukee Public Television co-productions. On October 10, , the station began broadcasting its newscasts in widescreenstandard definition, with the pillarboxes being removed. Then on June 28, , WISN-TV became the third station in Milwaukee (behind WTMJ-TV and WITI) to begin broadcasting its newscasts in high definition. Footage shot in-studio is broadcast in HD, while all news video from on-remote locations was initially upconverted to widescreen standard definition for broadcast. Since , the station has upgraded its mobile units and field cameras to HD as equipment has needed replacement. In May , the station unveiled its first HD skycam, overlooking the downtown Cathedral Square Park.

On January 24, , WISN-TV expanded its 10 p.m. newscast to one hour (becoming the third Hearst-owned station with an hour-long late local newscast, along with Albuquerque's KOAT and Honolulu's KITV).[26] This bumped Access Hollywood from its longtime &#;p.m. slot to &#;a.m., resulting in NBCUniversal Television Distribution asking for an opt-out from the program's syndication contract with WISN to move Access, ending up on WTMJ at &#;p.m. on April 11, [27] (Access aired at &#;a.m. from January until September due to WTMJ's January relaunch of its &#;p.m. newscast as the newsmagazine Wisconsin Tonight; it now airs on WITI in late night at &#;a.m.).

On September 10, , the station added an hour-long 11 a.m. local newscast leading into GMA Day (now GMA3: What You Need To Know), which coincided with the station introducing a next-generation news set, replacing one utilized since October with multiple re-facings and equipment replacements in the interim.[28] On January 14, , the station reduced its 10 p.m. newscast to the standard 35 minutes (likely due to its current ABC affiliation agreement), allowing WISN-TV to carry the ABC late night lineup "live" and in pattern for the first time in the station's history. The station began to air a nightly half-hour 9 p.m. newscast on WISN-DT2 on April 1, entitled WISN 12 News at 9 on True Crime, joining WITI and WMLW-TV (via WDJT) in carrying news at that time. It joined with many of its fellow Hearst stations in programming a prime time newscast on their .2 subchannels, which are usually associated with MeTV.[29] On days where TCN has an hour-long program in the news timeslots, alternate programming like Upfront and Matter of Fact with Soledad O'Brien is re-aired in the latter half to fill the entire hour.

The station first signed on the air on October 27, , as WTVW (for its on-air slogan "Wisconsin's Television Window"). In early , the station was purchased by the Hearst Corporation, publishers of The Milwaukee Sentinel and owners of WISN radio ( AM); the new owners changed channel 12's call letters to WISN-TV, after its radio sister (whose calls were derived from now-defunct newspaper The Wisconsin News, which merged with the Sentinel 15 years prior to its sign-on; the WTVW calls are now used by the CW-affiliated station in Evansville, Indiana). The station originally operated as a primary ABC affiliate with a secondary DuMont affiliation. WISN-TV lost the DuMont affiliation when that network ceased operations in , leaving it exclusively with ABC.

Our bodies merged into one, the guy grabbed me with both hands, and I was still facing the Turk who was working on my nipples, so I. Moaned from time to time. Then I felt how the guy pushed my hand away and grabbed my red-hot blank to quickly but with feeling peel it off. I felt blissful surrendering to these lustful males, and did not interfere with their actions.

While I was looking around, the door quietly opened and gentle hands wrapped around my waist, turning towards me. - Did you miss. - Of course I looked into his eyes, shining with happiness, and smiled.

Well, and then she began to do an enema. This was very unpleasant, it was much more difficult for me than now. "Did you have to get on all fours or lie on your side?", Neither one nor the other. I remained on my back with my legs spread apart on the sides. She just brought a gurney-tripod with an Esmarch Mug, inserted the tip into my asshole and turned on the tap on the hose.

Now discussing:

The neckline of the T-shirt almost completely revealed one breast with a protruding nipple. From this look, my penis spontaneously jumped up. I must say that I carefully shave between my legs, this makes the naked member seem even more naked and larger. Finally she came to, smiled mysteriously again, and without saying a word, turned and quickly went back to her room.
