KEC60 (sometimes referred to as Milwaukee All Hazards) is a NOAA Weather Radio station that serves the Milwaukee–Racine–Waukesha Metropolitan Area and surrounding cities. It is programmed from the National Weather Service forecast office in Sullivan, Wisconsin with its transmitter located in Delafield.

Weather and hazard information is broadcast by KEC60 pertaining to the adjacent coastal waters of Lake Michigan, mainly from North Point Lighthouse in Sheboygan to Winthrop Harbor, Illinois, and the following counties, all in Wisconsin;

The station's audio is also transmitted for all television viewers in KEC60's listening area and further through the Milwaukee television market via a Milwaukee Public Television digital subchannel on WMVS's Channel 10.4, which features visual weather information using AccuWeather's digital weather station presentation adjusted for use in non-commercial operations. In the analog age, WMVS and CBS affiliate WDJT-TV (Channel 58) aired KEC60 audio on their SAP channel during programs without alternate secondary audio.
