About Us


WCPT is one of the last independently owned radio stations in the country! We are not part of a conglomerate, and our hosts have the freedom to speak their minds and offer opinions from all points on the progressive spectrum.  These progressive voices work hard to keep you entertained and informed every day!  From all of us at WCPT, thank you for supporting Chicago’s Progressive Talk, Where Facts Matter!

We are committed to providing our listeners with an alternative to the “status quo” of talk radio, and to provide our advertisers with an effective and results-oriented product.
