STATE FAIR: It has been a number of years back when Journal Communications ran a studio from the grounds, and other local TV stations would offer live programs from the fairgrounds in West Allis. I remember watching a broadcast of WISN-TV’s "Howard and Rosemary" back in the late 1970s.

If you are interested in watching live broadcasts, or just live reports from the grounds, many of the Milwaukee area radio and TV stations will be on the grounds during the Wisconsin State Fair, which started today.
