IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a complete list of programs available on WGN AM

The items have been selected as the better choices around the country on which to hear a program, based mostly on:

  • Carrying the entire show, preferably live
  • Not forcing a prestream advertisement, (unless all stations do)
  • Support for non-Windows options - Macs, mobile devices and Linux,
  • Not preempting talk shows for sports,
  • Stability of the programming schedule
  • Accuracy of the station's web site,
  • Recorded Show is not available 24/7 or via podcast for free from the distributor,
  • Quality of the streaming audio
  • Interesting show for "out of market" listeners
  • Limited availability of the show even if it doesn't fit the above criteria
