Beaver Dam

With our roots planted in the broadcasting industry, GKB’s success throughout the company came from its start in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, and its small-town, community-oriented approach. It keeps us humble, honest and hard working.


Beaver Dam is an important town to GKB and is home to our first Verizon Wireless store, two radio stations, as well as our annual WBEV/WXRO Children’s Radiothon, which has raised over $1.5 million dollars for local Dodge County children’s charities.


Daily Dodge

A premium publisher dedicated to sharing local news and community events, serves the community with important information and live videos throughout the week.



Your hometown news station; and while breaking news is its bread and butter, the history of the station is something to talk about as well. Uncle Bill (Bill McCollum) celebrated 55 years with the station in 2018, and is a beloved on-air host and Marketing Consultant to the community.



A country music station that plays all of today’s hits – well, aside from The Barn Show, which plays old-time country music each evening. WXRO is also your home for NASCAR and carries the complete schedule of Sprint, Nationwide and Truck races.

The Children’s Radiothon

Each year, the Beaver Dam community comes together to help us raise money for local charities. To date, over $1.9 million dollars have been raised for local children’s charities through on-air pledging, events and corporate donations.

Verizon Wireless

Wireless Zone of Beaver Dam was our first retail store, and aims to reinvent the relationship you have with your wireless provider. We hope to provide our guests and business partners with an exemplary experience by understanding their wireless and technology needs and then only recommending solutions that are right for them.
