Reclusive millionaire behind WCPT AM 850 (Air America Chicago)

A reclusive Chicago millionaire, Fred Eychaner, is the owner of Air America's "Chicago" outlet, WCPT AM 850. (It's actually 50 miles outside Chitown, but what the hey).

The Tribune has a profile here. Unlike other reclusive millionaires, he apparently doesn't save his urine in jars. However, he is described as extremely frugal, including driving a Ford Escort. That's despite his foundation having $141 million and him being in the top 20 of Democratic donors.

It's the right wingers of McHenry & Lake counties that need this voice. So, I hope it helps a little.

I save my urine in jars. Rick Santorum likes to bathe in it.

I noticed you cannot post ONE POSITIVE thing. This must be a CONSERVATIVE TRAIT! HATE, HATE, HATE! Now that you have that, why not respond to this message with an INSULT from the RNC HOTLINE at 1-800-INSULTS. I can hardly wait for your INSULTING reply.

Can someone tell me what happened to the license, and what's being done about it?

Once again it is proven that those who beligerently praise Jesus
are the ones who least act like him.... which was his message wasn't it?
Which according to the forefathers, shouldn't have a rats bum to do with the politics of this country.
I act more like Jesus than you and I am a Pagan!
I am also definitely not a RepubliCANT
Grow up and feed on truth.
Hate as an action is uncouth, as an emotion it is an instinct.
Deciet, selfishness, is something completely different and should be met with contempt, by any person striving for truth... therefore having contempt towards an ignorant republiCANT isnt a band thing.
Let the Liberals and Democrats speak then we have a real platform to base our truths from....
What is your news source , corporate funded CNN?

Put Air America Radio on the 3 FM stations that now carry "Nine-FM". Nine-FM has fewer listeners than WCPT am850 does and would have better coverage of the Chicago area.

It is about time that we have real information instead of the spew that comes from all radio and TV across america.

Hotstuff...u r right on man. You forgot the Spin only zone FOX. Actually, now it seems all news is more like entertainment tonight. No real news, no real information. Those Neo-Cons seem to own everything...

William...I am with you...I am far south and the sound quality is very bad..thank God for the internet
