MADISON, WI (MetroSource-WSAU) -- A rally is planned to protest Wisconsin's stay at home order which is part of the coronavirus response. 

The ReOpen Wisconsin and Wisconsinites Against Excessive Quarantine are organizing the Freedom Rally to take place Friday, April 24th at the state capitol. 

Yesterday, WMTV reported that Adrianne Melby with ReOpen Wisconsin says thousands of protesters are expected to participate in what she says is intended to be a largely bipartisan event.

Tom King

Tom grew up in Wausau listening to sports on WSAU and music on our sister stations WRIG and WIFC and decided early on that that was where he wanted to be. After graduating from Wausau East in the mid 70's Tom headed to UWSP. He worked at the college radio station WWSP and weekends on WIFC while earning a degree in Communication.

After college he worked a year at WKAU radio in the Fox Valley before returning to Wausau and moving into radio sales. He missed the on-air work and returned to the air when WOFM went on the air and when it was purchased by Midwest Communications was asked to take on the sports position on WSAU. He has spent the last 13 years as part of the WSAU morning team while also broadcasting Wausau East sports and contributing to the morning show on WIFC.

If you listen to the show you know that Tom is the coach of the Wausau American Legion Baseball team. He's married (Sandy) with two sons (Wade & Cory) and spends his spare time reading, listening to music, watching movies and tv shows and following most of the major sports.
