The city and surrounding metro area of Chicago is a bustling city full of amazing people and great opportunities. We have partnered with organizations and created infrastructure within our own organization to give back to this great community. Our radio stations and businesses have a major voice in this city, and we leverage our platform to give back to people in need. Some of the great projects we have been involved with have been:
