The Chris Plante Show

Weekdays

9 - 11am

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.

The Nielsen Trust is a new band featuring Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick and his family.
The Nielsens are a pretty talented family. Of course, there’s Rick. The legendary guitar player from Rock n Roll Hall of Fame band, Cheap Trick. His son Daxx plays drums for Cheap Trick too. Another one of his sons, Miles, has his own successful project, Miles Nielsen and The Rusted Hearts. Miles’ wife, Kelly Steward, has her career as a singer and songwriter.

They have all jammed together at various times in the past but now it’s official. This family band is called The Nielsen Trust. They recently made their debut at the Castle Theatre in Bloomington, Illinois. It was an added surprise for the fans attending the album release party for Miles Nielsen and The Rusted Hearts.
