Wisconsin Lottery officials said Monday they will no longer broadcast nightly drawings live on television and will stop producing a weekly game show that had aired for more than a decade.
Cancelling the broadcasts reduces expenses for the state lottery. Acting lottery director Michael Edmonds says all lottery profits will be directed toward property tax relief.
Edmonds said the broadcasts will stop as of Jan. 1. Drawings will continue to be monitored by Capitol Police and an independent auditing firm.
