RHINELANDER - Northwoods public radio listeners can tune to a new option this week.

WHSF, a Wisconsin Public Radio Ideas Network affiliate, started broadcasting at 89.9 FM.

Here's the coverage area for the new frequency in the Northwoods.

Before WHSF, the nearest Ideas Network stations were out of Park Falls, Auburndale, and Wausau.

The network features state and national talk shows, news, and entertainment programs.

Wisconsin Public Radio coordinated with community radio station WXPR, which broadcasts from Rhinelander and Hurley.

Very little WHSF and WXPR programming will overlap.
