Named one of the top 20 best small cities to live in, Eau Claire is known for its educational system including the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, and health and technology business base. Baseball great Hank Aaron played his first professional season in Carson Park, a favorite recreation area in the center of the city. Neighboring Chippewa Falls is home to world-famous Leinenkugel’s Beer, giving the area a delicious beer to call its own. Eau Claire residents know how to work hard, and play even harder, with many wilderness areas for hiking, trails for biking, lakes for fishing, and ponds for skating. And in this community, the stations of Mid-West Family Broadcasting have been “a part of the family” for many decades.
