In addition to remaining the broadcast home of Warsaw Tiger athletics, the new programming highlights the return of “Indiana Outdoors.” The show is an early morning hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation radio program. The program is currently in its 20th year of broadcasting and is hosted by Bryan Poynter. It aired previously for about 15 years on WRSW-AM.

“Local stations like WRSW are everything to us,” said Poynter. “We’ve been doing this for two decades and we can’t do it without them.”

Poynter was named the DNR Outdoor Communicator of the year in 2000 for Indiana Outdoors. The program can be heard both Saturday and Sunday mornings at 6:00 a.m.

“IN the Know”, produced locally by News Now Warsaw, airs each Saturday and Sunday beginning at 7:00 a.m. and is hosted by News & Content Director Nick Deranek. The show has a Warsaw focus and features new guests each weekend sharing information about upcoming events in the area, as well as issues that interest the community. Regular guests include Warsaw Mayor Joe Thallemer.

“We began ‘IN the Know’ about two years ago when we recognized the real need for an open forum for our community,” said Woody Zimmerman, General Manager for News Now Warsaw (WRSW-AM) and its sister stations WRSW-FM and WAWC.

“The point of the show has always been to be hyper-local and that’s not going to change. If anything, we see this drastically improving,” said Zimmerman.

All three radio stations broadcast live from Warsaw, IN and are owned by parent company Kensington Digital Media.

Agricultural topics are discussed during the 30-minute “Hoosier Ag This Week”. The program, distributed by the Hoosier Ag Today network, airs Saturday afternoons at 12:00 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 1:00 p.m.

Finally, the updated weekend lineup features the Indiana State Police Road Show. The radio program concentrates on public safety and informational topics with statewide interest. The 15-minute talk show, originally titled “Signal-10” in the early sixties, began with two troopers in Northern Indiana. The name was later changed to the “Indiana State Police Road Show” and is the longest continuously aired state police public service program in Indiana.

“The safety of our public is more important than ever before,” said ISP Sgt. John Perrine. “If we can help just one listener each weekday with our show, then we’ve done our job.”

The show airs Saturday at 12:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1:30 p.m.

Several other locally produced programs continue their tenure on the air, including Smart Money Management (hosted by Alderfer Bergen and Associates), Legally Speaking (hosted by Minor and Lemon Attorneys at Law) Real Estate in Real Time (hosted by Mark Skibowski of ReMax Lakes), and weekly religious programming from the Nappanee Missionary Church.

News Now Warsaw is also the local affiliate of the Indianapolis Colts, The Chicago Cubs, Purdue University Football and Basketball, The Indianapolis 500 and the Brickyard 400.

Other weekend programming includes the nationally syndicated Coast to Coast AM, At Home with Gary Sullivan, Rudy Maxa’s Worldwide Travel, Leo LaPorte The Tech Guy, Beyond the Beltway, Handle on the Law, and The Bill Cunningham Show.
