Who is Arnie...
I want to say “thank you.” I know there are choices in which station you listen to and the fact that you choose COW97 is just great! Call the COW lines anytime. This is your station and I feel privileged to be a part of your day!
Arnie has been nominated for 3 times by the CMA & 3 times by the ACM for Personality of The Year, and named Best Morning Show by the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association 7 times.
Hello!…My name is Ben Butler and me and Arnie are helping to start your day off with a bang, every weekday morning from 5-10!
I was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin and spent my childhood growing up in Black River Falls so this truly is home for me. After graduating from Black River Falls High School, I took some classes in La Crosse before ending up at UW-Eau Claire.
I began my radio career right here at the ripe age of 20. Over the past 19 years, I have done about every shift there is, morning, noon and night, last coming from the Wausau-Stevens Point area.
I LOVE country music and have a pretty wide array of knowledge in the field. Feel free to e-mail me at [email protected] or give me and Arnie a call in the studio from 6-10am (888) 269-2699…I’d love to chat!

What did you want to be as a kid?
My cousins and I used to “play radio” so I guess this is what I’m supposed to do!
What cartoon character or superhero would you like to be and why?
The Incredible Hulk…who’s gonna mess with that guy?
If they were to make a movie about you, who would play you and what would the title be?
Fred Savage (People tell me I looked like him when I was a kid) “Beyond Help”
If you could meet anyone famous, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
I never did get to meet George Jones, Cash or Waylon…that would be cool…or, of course, any personalities from my favorite game shows!
What is your weirdest quirk?
I’m not the tidiest person but with certain things, everything has to be in a certain order or done in a certain way. I’m sure it’s a pain in the butt for people that encounter this.
What is the wallpaper on your cell phone?
A picture of my daughters, Hailee, Scarlett & Addie.
