WBEV-WXRO’s Uncle Bill Honored With Street Name

6/20/17 – The Beaver Dam Common Council last night unanimously approved changing the name of a street to honor a local, living legend. Stoddart Street, which runs for about two blocks in front of the WBEV-WXRO studio’s, is being renamed ‘Bill McCollum Way.’ Station Manager Emeritus John Moser told city officials last night that the name change was the idea of Good Karma Brands owner Craig Karmazin to honor someone with deep roots in the community. The city now has to order the street signs which could take several weeks to arrive. In the meantime, a formal unveiling is in the works around the time of Bill’s 53rd anniversary at the station, which is on the Fourth of July.
