Kelly kicks-off campaign to “make radio great again”
Political commentator and award-winning TV producer. William J. Kelly marks his triumphant return to radio with the launch of “The Citizen Kelly Show” on 1590 WCGO this week.
The talk show takes on the worlds of politics, and entertainment in “humorous pursuit of truth, justice and all things America” Saturday mornings beginning at 9AM.

“I’m very proud to announce the Citizen Kelly Show – the new incarnation of the Kelly Truth Squad. The Kelly Truth Squad was scuttled by Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s supporters at AM 560 WIND back in 2010 but we have been reborn with Citizen Kelly. Our mission now is to make radio great again,“ Kelly says.
In 2010, CBS reporter Jay Levine was caught on-tape violently threatening to deck Kelly for asking Rahm Emanuel questions about his residency problem. The video went viral and AM 560 WIND’s general manager Jeff Reisman and disgraced NBC reporter-turned-on-air host Amy Jacobson viciously attacked Kelly – not Levine – for his report. At the time, Kelly was also a writer for the Washington Times. Kelly later legally challenged Rahm’s residency in court.
In what can only be called radio karma, the low-rated AM 560 WIND is tied for 28th place in the current ratings.
“As a lifelong Chicagoan, I grew up with great radio but Chicago radio isn’t great anymore. That’s why I legally and spiritually changed my name to Citizen Kelly and launched this campaign to make radio great again.”
1590 WCGO, a 10,000 watt station, covers the Chicago media market. Coinciding with the debut of the Citizen Kelly Show, the station is also launching new FM simulcasts of its programs on 104.1 FM and 106.3 FM this week.
