User-submitted facts and corrections:

  • I have to take exception to the "STRONGEST RADIO STATIONS IN SHERIDAN WYOMING". You list KZZS (98.3 FM OUT OF STORY WYOMING) as #1. They are headquartered In Buffalo Wyoming 34 miles from Sheridan while the KYTI AND KZWY towers are right here in Sheridan. Could you please correct this and put KZWY AND KYTI who are actually Sheridan Stations as #1 and #2? Thanks
