WNTD is an AM radio station in
Chicago, Illinois. It is owned by Sovereign City Radio Services LLC and has a time brokerage format. It is currently one of three stations in the Chicago market that airs Relevant Radio, a Catholic talk format. Its frequency is 950 AM. WNTD has separate day-time (1000 watts; non-directional) and night-time (5000 watts; directional) transmitter locations.
WNTD was the original affiliate of
Air America Radioin Chicago. Program hosts included Al Franken, Randi Rhodes, and Janeane Garofalo. The new network launched on March 31, 2004. However, these programs ended after two weeks, on April 14, due to a payment dispute between Multicultural Radio Broadcasting (the previous owner of WNTD) and Air America Radio.
Before its brief run as a progressive talk radio station, WNTD was a One-on-One Sports (now
Sporting News Radio) affiliate, at first as WZDB but soon changed to WIDB. One-On-One was headquartered in suburban Northbrook. The Sporting News affiliation has now passed to WSCR.
Earlier incarnations of this station include WGRT ("W-GREAT"), owned by
Ralph Atlass, founder of WBBM, and one-time owner of WIND; WJPC, owned by Johnson Publishing Company; and WEJM ("Jammin'").
Prior to WGRT, for 20 years the call letters were WAAF, a daytime only station with an all
jazzformat. It featured Marty Fayein the early morning, Daddio Dayliein the late morning, Olympic great Jesse Owensplaying jazz from noon-3, and Dick Buckleyand Jerry Leightonfrom 3 til sunset.
