You can also contact Colleen Sibthorp and she'll be glad to assist you at 309-794-7741.

WVIK will be part of a special week of celebration in LeClaire, Iowa. We have teamed up with tourism officials to help promote the river town Oct. 19-26. WVIK's one and only Roald Tweet will be producing five new live "Rock Island Lines" at 11 a.m. each weekday that week. The three-minute shows will be rebroadcast each night at 6:30.
