Station Owner Randy Hopper Loses Wisconsin State Senate Recall Election
August 11, 2011 at 4:30 AM (PT)
MOUNTAIN DOG MEDIA owner RANDY HOPPER was voted out of the WISCONSIN State Senate TUESDAY as one of two Republicans to lose a recall election in the politically polarized state. Republicans maintained control of the Senate despite a challenge fueled by union anger over Gov. SCOTT WALKER's budget-cutting and the Senate's vote to end collective bargaining for state employees, but among the targeted Republican legislators, HOPPER was one of two who lost, in HOPPER's case to Democrat JESSICA KING.
HOPPER's company owns four stations in WISCONSIN, including Talk KFIZ-A and AC WFON-A (K107.1)/FOND DU LAC, Sports WCLB-A (950 THE GAME)/SHEBOYGAN, and Sports WMBE-A (1530 THE GAME)/CHILTON-APPLETON, WI.
