  1. I vaguely recall Menomonie/Eau Claire’s WMEQ being technically considered an affiliate early in the network’s existence, when all of the outlets (IIRC) may have been owned by the former CC. That said, WMEQ would’ve only had a part-time affiliation, and would’ve still been primarily a Talk (as opposed to Sports) outlet.
