540 WZER in Milwaukee (Jackson) was bought out by Salem in Early 2001 when the short lived Catholic Family Radio (Heard in Chicago on 930 WAUR) sold it.
Salem went with a preaching format as “540 The Word” thus the WRRD calls.
Salem pulled out of Milwaukee in Early 2008. 540 went to Craig Karmazin (Owner of 1510 WAUK) and 105.3 went to EMF.
ESPN Radio and the WAUK calls went to 540. The WRRD calls were placed on 1510 and have been there since. It was ESPN Deportes from around 2009-2017. The current owner kept the RRD calls since it fits well with Progressive Talk.
There’s a bit of history if you need it
