Radio station 89Q celebrates new location
WAUSAU - A radio station is celebrating both old and new things this year. 

People gathered at 89Q's new radio station headquarters Friday in Wausau. This is the 30th year the station has been running.

89Q Program Director Mike Lanser said the old space was getting too crammed to work in. 

"It's been a really great blessing for us this year to be able to get into this new building with the extra space that we have," said Lanser. "[It] gives us extra room to expand and takes a bit of weight off our shoulders to concentrate more on serving the community."

89Q's new location was funded by donations from listeners. 

General manager Coy Sawyer said the old location made it harder to get out in the community. He wants this new location to be closer to the people listening to the show. 

"We're so blessed to be here," said Sawyer. "It fits our studio perfectly, our staff perfectly, and we just think our outreach will grow from being right here in Wausau."

The station broadcasts as far north as Rhinelander. 

Both Lanser and Sawyer said they are excited to be there before their Christmas music season begins.
