The Chris Plante Show (OLD)

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.

Finish on the 50 YARD Line!!
The Soldier Field 10 returns to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to America over Memorial Day Weekend in Chicago. The annual 10 mile and first-ever 10K option take place on May 28, 2022, and will start with a pre-race playing of taps and a military salute. Both courses run south on DuSable Lake Shore Drive before looping back, with spectacular skyline views, along Lake Michigan to the finish ON the field at Soldier Field. There, you can take in the sights and then head outside for the post-race tailgate in the Stadium Green with free beer, live music, and MORE!

CHARITY
One in three veterans returning home suffer from the “invisible wounds of war,” including PTSD, traumatic brain injury and related mental health conditions associated with their military service. The Road Home Program: The National Center of Excellence for Veterans and Their Families at Rush connects veterans and their families with the specialized mental health care, peer-to-peer outreach, counseling and resources they need to transition from military to civilian life — regardless of their ability to pay.

About Chris Plante:

Chris Plante made the switch to radio after 17 years at CNN including nearly ten years assigned to the Pentagon covering the U.S. military and intelligence community.

Chris was assigned variously as Pentagon Correspondent, Senior Producer for National Security Affairs, Military Affairs Producer and as an assignment editor. He travelled extensively for CNN covering defense related stories from Saudi Arabia in 1990 and Bosnia in 1995, to Vietnam, Indonesia, Africa and the remote corners of the former Soviet Union.

Chris received the Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio and Television News Directors’ Association (RTNDA) for his reporting from the Pentagon during the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001.

Chris formerly hosted his own program on the The American Life television network, and nowadays makes frequent appearances on various cable news networks including the Fox News Channel, CNN and MSNBC.

Representing the third generation of his family that has been “on-the-air” in radio and television, Chris brings a unique world-view, and largely conservative/libertarian values to his role as talk show host on WLS-AM 890.

Marching in lock-step with no politician, Chris says his political party is “Practi-crat”, “…because of my distinctly practical political leanings.
