WLS celebrates 20 years of Talk


It’s been 20 years since Chicago’s WLS-AM switched to its current Talk format. In celebration of The Big 89 being “Where Chicago Comes to Talk”, the station aired a 2-hour holiday special over the weekend called “The Big Hosts of The Big 89”. Host Jeff Davis traced The Big 89’s relevance, impact and status as one of America’s premiere talk stations. The show featured a series of one-on-one interviews with Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Don Wade & Roma and Roe Conn.
