Are You the Best?
We’re looking for the Best in the Burbs. Are you one of the best? We’d like to hear about your product, service, cause or area of expertise. Throughout 2014, WCKG will be focusing for an entire MONTH on one select Suburb in Chicago-land. While we lock the focus on each Suburb, we want to dig deep and showcase the best that town has to offer.
Nominate the best local businesses and it could land you some Suburban Schwag!
Who’s The BEST in the Burbs?
Start Advertising for $497/Month!
How can we do this? No…it’s not cause we’re so “crazy” these “CRAZY deals” are available until we come to our senses. We’re offering a Start Me Up package because lots of businesses waste $500 on really BAD marketing.
And we figure, if you’re willing to blow $500 on yard signs or window stickers for your vehicle, or jerseys for a little league team which are FUN, but rarely result in results for your business…why not give WCKG a try for LESS than $500 a month?
Besides…if ya start me up…I’ll never stop…never stop…never stop….never stop WORKING for you!
Here’s what you get for your $497* Each Month:
(15) 60 SECOND WEEKLY COMMERCIALS ON AM 1530

Host A 2 Hour Live Broadcast!
We like to bring the show on the road. Ask one of those other stations if they’ll broadcast from your biz, and IF they consider it without charging you an arm and a leg, they’ll send a few interns out with a card table and some magnets to give away.
Since we are a TALK station, we’ll come out and TALK with YOU on the air. We’ll TALK with your clients on the AIR. We’ll even talk with your vendors and neighbors. We’ll make YOU the star for 2 HOURS and we’ll promote the living daylights out of it before we even show up! Oh, and when we arrive we’ll bring our mascot, our BEST giveaways and we’ll look sharp so YOU look great.
We’ll even invite our friends who are local celebrities to add to the event and make it GREAT. The best part is, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg… We limit these to very special ideas, and locations and dates fill up fast. If you’re interested, reserve your spot now!
Here’s what you get with our LIVE BROADCAST:
(2) Hour Live Broadcast at your business!
Bring Show on the Road to My Place!
(25) On Air Promos Leading Up To Event
(25) Commercials for Your Business Month of Your Event
(1) Social Media Blitz
(*Location & Venue Subject to Scheduling & Approval From WCKG Management.)
WCKG Only Has Eyes for You…
Call up Google, Groupon, the newspaper, billboard company, radio station, TV Station, or magazine and tell them you want to be the ONLY Car Dealer, Hospital, Insurance Company, Medical Group, Mortgage Company, soft drink, beer, Fast Food Chain, Body Shop, Cable Company, or Grocery Store they allow advertising from.
What do you think they’ll say? We can tell you. They’ll say sorry but…we can’t do that, or YOU can’t afford it.
WCKG is offering Category Exclusivity to a limited number of businesses in certain categories. The BEST part is, it will STILL be far less expensive than advertising on any of the outlets we mentioned above.
Doesn’t it seem a little disingenuous for a media outlet to endorse or promote ONE beer, and then turn around and promote another one? Which one are they supporting?
As our old Uncle Merle used to say, “You can’t ride two horses with one ass.”
And that’s often true…for certain categories and business types. So for a select few categories, we’ll be TRAIL BLAZING once again, by accepting category exclusivity. To find out if your biz qualifies and lock up your verticle, call Colleen ASAP at (312) 380-1530 or click below to drop her an internet communication.
I Wanna Be Exclusive with WCKG!
We’ll Make Ya Famous…
What do Mike North, Adam Carolla, David Letterman, Ryan Seacrest, Johnny Carson, and Carson Daly all have in common?
They got their start in RADIO and Radio made them famous…
Mike North actually got his start buying time on a small AM station in Chicago while he was a hot dog vendor. He parlayed that experience into becoming one of the first Million Dollar Morning Men in Sports Radio.
Seattle Sutton, Lou Manfredini, David Hockberg, the Smith Brothers, Celozzi & Ettleson, Dick Portillo and many other local business people are now LOCAL CELEBRITIES.
Why?….because they are seen and heard all over Chicago media.
Now you have an opportunity to be HEARD on the same historic call letters Mancow, Mike North, Dan Patrick, Steve Dahl, Gary Meier, Jonathon Brandmeier, Kevin Matthews, Bill O’Reilly, Penn Gillette, Adam Carolla, Dr. Drew and Howard Stern all called their radio home!
If you were to call up WLS-AM and ask to buy an hour to do a radio show, their rates are $3500-$5000 per hour. Suburban WIND-AM sells an hour of weekend airtime for anywhere from $1200-$1800 per hour. Then there are even smaller AM stations who air a hodge podge of various ethnic and religious programming. The good news is, they are far cheaper. The bad news is, for $200-$300 an hour, you’re on after a show in another language and followed by a show about religion.
WCKG offers training, support, and since we’re selective about our programming, our shows work together to sustain a healthy weekend audience of like minded listeners. All this, for FAR less than WLS-AM and WIND-AM.
