WISS (1100 kHz AM) or Big Red AM 1100 is a radio station broadcasting an News/Talk format. Licensed to Berlin, Wisconsin, USA, it serves central Wisconsin and the Fox Valley. It formerly operated at 1090 kHz. The station is currently owned by Hometown Broadcasting LLC (owned by Tom Boyson), which acquired the station in 1999. WISS originally had an FM sister station (WISS-FM) at 102.3 MHz which was later sold and moved to 104.7 MHz.
WISS changed its music format from Classic Country to soft Oldies on February 2, 2009. Artists heard as part of the new format, according to the station's website, include The Beatles, Carpenters, The Supremes, Barry Manilow, Anne Murray, Frank Sinatra, Kenny Rogers, and Neil Diamond.
The station ran an annual trivia contest between 1982 and 2005. The contest was billed as the "world's longest running commercial trivia contest" before the 2006 contest was canceled.
In addition to the main station, WISS is relayed by an additional translator to widen its broadcast area.
