WHAD (90.7 FM) is a non-commercial radio station licensed to the western Waukesha County community of Delafield, Wisconsin and serving the Milwaukee metropolitan area, transmitting from south of Delafield. They are part of Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR), and air WPR's "Ideas Network", consisting of news and talk programming. Like nearby WUWM (which serves Milwaukee proper), the station airs BBC World Service in the overnight hours. WHAD maintains a local news staff and cut-ins outside of the main WPR network, and the station's facilities, located inside the Reuss Federal Plaza in Milwaukee, originate some programming for the network, including Kathleen Dunn's afternoon program. WHAD has its own 414 studio line for Milwaukee callers to call into locally-originated programs.
The station's transmitter is located almost halfway between Milwaukee and Madison, thus providing some coverage to eastern portions of Madison. Due to this, however, other stations, such as WRSTOshkosh (also serving Fond du Lac) and Sheboygan's WSHS, provide Ideas Network service to the northern part of the nine-county Milwaukee market area, and other distant portions must listen to the network via streaming audio.
W250BN is not owned by Wisconsin Public Radio, but instead "Radio Power, Inc.", which has moved the translator over the years up the Rock Freeway corridor from Beloit in an attempt to move it to Milwaukee in order to likely present a ready-made signal for a commercial operation to broadcast an HD Radio subchannel or AM signal over. The Federal Communications Commission has questioned this and other translator moves in the last few months, and has asked Radio Power to comment on their true motives for a latter move to the MPTV Tower on Milwaukee's northwest side.
