Darla Isham Station Manager
In her words:
I was born and raised in Park Falls Wisconsin, graduating from Lincoln High School in 1971. I’m married to classmate Gary Isham. We have 5 children between us…his, mine, and ours. Radio advertising has been part of my life for 10 years. I’ve been part of the community for almost as long as the radio station has been here. I’m committed to positive community involvement, and serving the businesses that radio delivers to all across Wisconsin. I love the 4 seasons…(Oh! I mean 2 seasons...SUMMER AND WINTER) So, we camp and snowmobile! “Heartland Communications” is a great team of leaders and a great company!

The Morning Show with Joel Karnick


 
Joel Karnick WCQM Morning Show

Program Director
I started in radio way back in 1986 in Menomonie, WI. My radio career has taken me to Independence, Iowa; Marshall, MN; Amery, WI; Rice Lake, WI; Mineapolis, MN (KFAN); and finally, the last stop, WCQM/WPFP in Park Falls, WI. I have worked here since March of 2000. After 20 years in radio, I've figured out that I'm really not qualified to do much else, so you are pretty much stuck with me! We have a great staff, and I enjoy coming to work every day. Tune into the morning show, and I'll see if I can make you a winner of one of our "Fabulous and Glamorous" prizes!

DJ Rick


 
DJ Rick 98 Q-Country afternoon DJ 2PM to 7PM

Imported from the Milwaukee Suburb of Cudahy, DJ Rick has been blessed to call Northern Wisconsin home for over 34 years now. He has been employed by WCQM/WNBI on and off throughout the years, but has been the afternoon guy (1 pm to 7 pm) at WCQM since 1999. He says "I can't even call this a "job" because it's a pleasure walking into the studio every day. We really have a great group of people to work with". Outside of WCQM, he dabbles in quality control at Flambeau River Papers (34 years), is a high school basketball referee, umpires WIAA baseball & softball, and operated Arrow Entertainment mobile DJ service for over 20 years.He recently retired from the mobile DJ business after playing for a huge New Years Eve Wedding Dec. 31st 2007. He and his wife, Nancy, have been married for over 35 years and have two grown boys, Jason of Eau Claire, and Jeffrey of Las Vegas, along with the pride & joy of his life, his 4 year old grandson, Ethan. When he is not working he enjoys traveling (especially to Las Vegas, Mexico, Arizona, and Florida) golf, working around the house and grilling out with a cold one while following all of our Wisconsin sports teams. He says “My hope is that our listeners enjoy the afternoon show as much as I do putting it together. A little fun never hurt anyone. Life is too short to NOT enjoy each and every day.”
