CCM+E/CHICAGO along with CLEAR CHANNEL AIRPORTS have launched a Smooth Jazz and info station for local airports. CHICAGOLANDMEDIA.COM reports, "the new radio station is named AIR CHICAGO. This station plays commercial-free Smooth Jazz music 24 hours each day. The only exception to the music will be when information is being given out to travelers using O'HARE and MIDWAY airports. These updates are primarily traffic and weather updates from the CLEAR CHANNEL-owned TOTAL TRAFFIC NETWORK, but can also include news and airport information."
CHICAGO DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION Commissioner ROSEMARIE S. ANDOLINO said, "On behalf of Mayor RAHM EMANUEL, we are proud that O'HARE and MIDWAY, in partnership with CLEAR CHANNEL, are the first airports to offer a radio station specifically devoted to keeping passengers in touch with real-time information. AIR CHICAGO is a great example of our efforts to provide a 'best-in-class' experience for the millions of travelers who fly through our busy transportation hubs."
