Here’s when 93.9 LITE FM will start playing Christmas music in the Chicago area – NBC Chicago
The most wonderful time of the year begins even earlier this year.
A local Chicago radio station will begin broadcasting Christmas music nonstop ahead of the holiday season this week.
Chicago’s 93.9 LITE FM will air on vacation starting at 4:05 p.m. Wednesday. The station will continue to broadcast festive music until the end of the year.
In 2020, 93.9 began playing holiday music non-stop on November 6 to spread holiday cheer during the pandemic.
“This year marks our 21st celebration as Chicago’s Christmas music station,”
Mick Lee, 93.9 LITE FM program director and host of the afternoon show, said in a statement. “93.9 LITE FM is ready to spread holiday cheer, joy and hope across Chicagoland by playing everyone’s favorite Christmas tunes. “
The station will host a celebratory music flip on Wednesday afternoon, with hosts Melissa Forman, Robin Rock and Lee hosting a two-hour commercial-free show starting at 4 p.m.
“I’m so proud of the 21-year 93.9 LITE FM vacation tradition,” Matt Scarano,
president of iHeartMedia Chicago, said in a statement. “93.9 LITE FM is sharing one of the best gifts of the season with our listeners as a Chicago Christmas music station. “
