INFO CENTER


Chicago’s Progressive Talk believes that a blue city and a blue state deserve a Progressive Talk radio station that is entertaining, informative, irreverent and chock full of smart, funny shows with a progressive perspective.

We are one of the last independently owned radio stations in the country. Because we are not part of a conglomerate, our hosts have the freedom to speak their minds… and speak they do.  Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Wayne Besen, Norman Goldman, Amy Goodman, Tavis Smiley and more progressive voices work hard to keep you entertained and informed every day!  Thank you for supporting Chicago’s Progressive Talk!

We commit to providing you an alternative to the status quo of talk radio and to providing our advertisers with an effective and results oriented product.
