LYONS TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL noncommercial WLTL/LAGRANGE, IL is producing a new weekly talk show for DUPAGE RADIO News/Talk WCKG (1530 AM)/CHICAGO. The show, "STUDY HALL RADIO," produced by WLTL student staffers with faculty adviser and host CHRIS THOMAS and developed with WCKG OM JOHN SPATARO, will air SATURDAYS at 2p (CT) beginning APRIL 4th.
THOMAS said, “WLTL’s student broadcasters are generating the topics, researching and reporting the stories and conducting the interviews. I am just the person helping to put all of the pieces together and making connections for the listening audience as to why adults should care about what is on the minds of students today.”
SPATARO said, “We wanted to find a way WCKG could give back and help current students, and what better way than to give the kids real world, commercial radio experience on AM 1530 while still in high school."
