REV. JESSE JACKSON SR. told THE CHICAGO DEFENDER that he is moving his "RAINBOW-PUSH COALITION” and “KEEP HOPE ALIVE” talk shows from CLEAR CHANNEL WGRB-A to WVON-A/CHCAGO.
The "RAINBOW/PUSH COALITION" show will air from 10-11a SATURDAY on WVON. “KEEP HOPE ALIVE” will air from 7-9a on SUNDAY.
JACKSON expressed his thoughts on the changes this way: “This is a fundamental change in CHICAGO (for AFRICAN-AMERICANS). When HAROLD WASHINGTON won in 1983, that was a first fundamental change for us. But this is a shift to a 10,000-watt, 24-hour, seven-days-a-week station and gives us access that we never had before.”
