You asked, We listened

WLS-AM 890 welcomes The Chris Plante Show!

You also told us you missed having a show that more closely matches what Big John and Ramblin’ Ray are talking about in the early morning, and what’s on Rush’s agenda starting at 11am.

You told us. We listened. Meet the newest edition to our line-up. Meet Chris Plante. Considering him our embed in Washington. Every weekday morning from 9am – 11am CT, he’ll have the inside word on the day’s top stories, what’s really important, and what it means to you.

Chris is a recovering member of the Washington media, having spent 17 years at CNN covering Breaking News and Pentagon and National Security issues. He knows who is who – and better yet, knows who to believe. His knowledge and experience – in and out of the DC circles, will help provide the right perspective of what’s going on.

Starting January 1st, listen to The Chris Plante Show, 9am – 11am CT weekdays. THEN, stay tuned for Rush Limbaugh, once again, heard LIVE, 11am – 2pm CT weekdays on WLS-AM 890.
