Former CITADEL Talk WLS-A and SALEM Talk WIND-A/CHICAGO host CISCO COTTO's next move is to form a community church in his hometown of OAK PARK, IL, reports the CHICAGO TRIBUNE.
COTTO, who will serve as pastor of the new congregation, started the ball rolling on the VILLAGE CHURCH OF OAK PARK with a blog post, and now tells the TRIBUNE that he hopes the congregation, which he is forming with an eye towards what he says is the 80% of local residents with no formal religious affiliation, will be meeting regularly by FEBRUARY.
COTTO studied religion at MOODY BIBLE INSTITUTE. He says that his church will not take a political ideology despite his past as a conservative talk show host.
