Steve Dahl returns to Chicago radio on WLS-AM

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago radio icon Steve Dahl is launching his new show on WLS-AM radio Monday afternoon.

He's been doing a podcast for six years and now he can be heard every afternoon.

"It seems like a good time to re-energize radio a little bit and maybe turn people onto the podcast," Dahl said before his first broadcast. "I still have a wild streak, for sure. I'm a little bit more aware of the down side of having one than I used to be, but I still feel like I have the same energy and irreverence that I've always had.

"I've declared the radio studio a swear-free zone, which sounds very 'Church Lady' of me, but we really swear a lot on the podcast, so we really need to be careful here."

Dahl can be heard every afternoon from 2-6 p.m. on WLS 89.
