The Chris Plante Show

Every weekday morning from 9am – 11am CT, Chris Plante will 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.

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.
