Changing its Tune

Wisconsin is changing its tune over tourism -- literally.

The State Department of Tourism tells NBC–15 News it is accepting an offer from the composer to write a new song for its summer advertising campaign.

The current music sounds strikingly similar to a song by a British band.
Tourism Department Communications Director Jerry Huffman says the debate was taking away from the tourism campaign's message, so the decision was made to take up the offer to change the music.

The new music will debut at the Governor's Conference on Tourism in early March.
