WILS AM & FM

1320 AM WILS (W Ingham County LanSing) is a News/Talk station in Lansing, Michigan.  I'm not sure what year this sticker is from but they could have had a Top-40, Country or Adult Standards format at the time.

Sister station 101.7 WILS was a Rock station in the late 1970s and early 80s.  The "racetrack" shape design of their logo was surely inspired by legendary AOR outlet WRIF in nearby Detroit.
