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.
