What We're Working On
Tonight on Newswatch 12 we take our "Long Summer Weekend" live in Wausau to bring you the following stories from Marathon County:


When you drive into the county, you may see signs that say "Time is on your side." But what does that mean? We'll talk to the county administrator about the initiative for the slogan.

We'll talk to a radio personality who has been doing the job for 40 years in Wausau and Rhinelander and recently received the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association's Local Broadcast Legends Award.

And we'll show you how a group of people who have enjoyed exploring the Ice Age Trail are now doing their part to make sure the next generation enjoys the trail as well.


We'll bring you the details on these stories and more on our Long Summer Weekend tonight on Newswatch 12 - news from where you live.Read More

2 dead in semi explosion on I-94 in Wisconsin
MOUNT PLEASANT - A county coroner official says two people are dead after a semi crashed on an interstate in southeastern Wisconsin, exploding and setting fire to other vehicles.

A WTMJ-TV photographer who witnessed the crash says the semi jumped the median on I-94 about 11 a.m. Wednesday. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the accident happened near Mount Pleasant, about 24 miles (38 kilometers) south of Milwaukee.

The Racine County medical examiner says two people died, and the sheriff is reporting several injuries but has not provided details.

All lanes of the interstate are closed. A Flight for Life helicopter was sent to the scene.Read More
