On the way to Madison, I stopped by the Crystal Lake stations, of which there are three: Newsweb's brokered WAIT (850 Crystal Lake), NextMedia's "Star" WZSR (105.5 Woodstock), and Polnet's Polish-language WNVR (1030 Vernon Hills). NextMedia's Crystal Lake studios are located at the WAIT transmitter site on Northwest Highway (US 14) west of downtown Crystal Lake. (This makes more sense than it sounds, as WAIT used to belong to NextMedia, before being sold to Newsweb.)
Here we see a new promo van for WWYW (103.9 Dundee), as well as an older van promoting the former Spanish-language CHR simulcast on WZCH (103.9) and WRZA (99.9 Kankakee) under Entravision ownership. Ironically, WRZA is now also owned by Newsweb.
