Simply Superior: Northwood Tech

Aug 6, 2021, 10:00 am to 11:00 am

Event Navigation

Simply Superior is a news and public affairs program focused on events and issues in northwestern Wisconsin, hosted by Robin Washington. This week, a discussion about Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College’s name change to Northwood Technical College. The change was effective Aug. 2. The guest is John Will, Northwood’s president.

The show will also include a discussion about proposals to rename Douglas County to Douglas County — or Douglass County — after either the botanist for whom the Douglas fir was named or Frederick Douglass, instead of Stephen Douglas, the pro-slavery Illinois senator who ran for President and lost to Lincoln. The discussion is about Douglas County, Oregon, however, not Wisconsin. There are 16 Douglas Counties nationwide. The proposal in Oregon follows the renaming of Chicago’s Douglas Park (now Douglass) after a campaign by elementary school students.

Musical guests on this episode are the multi-instrument duo Moors and McCumber, one half of which (James Moors) is a longtime Superior resident.

Simply Superior airs each Friday at 10 a.m. on 91.3 FM KUWS Radio in Superior and 90.9 FM WUWS in Ashland. It also airs at 7 p.m. on 88.9 FM in Brule, 104.7 FM in Washburn, and 88.5 FM in Superior. Archives are available at wpr.org.
