AM 620 WTMJ (W The Milwaukee Journal) is a News/Talk station in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  They also carry Milwaukee Brewers baseball, Milwaukee Bucks basketball and have broadcast Green Bay Packer games since 1929--the longest relationship between a radio station and NFL team.

Jonathan Green worked as an announcer at WTMJ continuously (almost) from 1969 until 2010.

WTMJ has carried Brewers games for all but two seasons since the team moved to Milwaukee in 1970.  George Bamberger became the manager of the team in 1978 and led them to a 26-game turnaround from the previous season. The Brewers became "Bambi's Bombers" when the team slammed 173 home runs, 48 more than in 1977.

Another Brewers-themed WTMJ sticker can be seen here.  A WTMJ Packers magnet is over here.
