Covering the unrest at the Wisconsin state capital, veteran WISN reporter Nick Bohr has been heckled by protestors who mistakenly affiliate his station with conservative radio station WISN-AM.

“Allow me to correct a misperception among attendees hassling us. Mark Belling’s radio station was sold by WISN-TV’s owners in the mid-90’s,” Bohr tweeted on Friday, referring to the popular conservative radio host who is the face of WISN-AM.

“The two WISNs haven’t been located in the same building for years,” OnMilwaukee columnist Tim Cuprisin points out, “and WISN-AM is owned by Clear Channel Communications, while WISN-TV is owned by Hearst.”

Perhaps taking a cue from anti-Fox News demonstrators, unruly protesters have attempted to disrupt Bohr’s live shots from the capitol, according to Cuprisin.
