William J. Kelly Takes Over Middays at WCGO Radio
EVANSTON, IL, July 6, 2016 – “The Citizen Kelly Show”, hosted by William J. Kelly, has been expanded to middays on AM 1590 WCGO. The Emmy award-winning producer and political commentator kicks off his daily show this week from noon to 2pm Monday through Friday. The show is also available online at www.1590wcgo.com.
“I’m thrilled to be moving to middays at WCGO,” Kelly says. “To me – this move represents an opportunity to make Chicago radio great again. Great like it once was but isn’t now. With ‘The Citizen Kelly Show,’ first, we will capture the hearts and minds of people throughout Chicagoland and then…the world.”
In 2010, CBS reporter Jay Levine threatened to punch Kelly for asking Emanuel questions about his residency – a heated issue in the Chicago mayor’s race. The incident was captured on tape. After a story on Breitbart.com, the video went viral but it was Kelly – not Levine – who was attacked by Chicago media outlets, including AM 560 WIND, a conservative radio station that was once home to Kelly’s radio program. AM 560’s Amy Jacobson, the disgraced former NBC reporter, was one of Kelly’s most vicious critics. Kelly was a writer for the Washington Times at the time.
In 2014, his DC column on the demolition of Ronald Reagan’s Chicago home went viral prompting a White House response to the controversy.
Kelly will also assume the official role of Sales Manager for the station. 1590 WCGO is a 10,000-watt radio station based in Evanston, Illinois.
The Citizen Kelly Show takes on the worlds of politics and entertainment in “humorous pursuit of truth, justice and all things America.” For more information about the Citizen Kelly Show, visit www.citizenkelly.com.
