WRTE Radio Arte 90.5 FM
Radio Arte, serving Pilsen and Little Village, broadcasts a variety of Spanish/English programming. Operated by the National Museum of Mexican Art, it was acquired by Chicago Public Media this June. There are outlets for young adults through a free one-year journalism and digital media program. These WRTE productions create web-based projects that cover topics of health, homelessness and gay rights. Music programming includes a wide variety of Spanish pop, rock and hip-hop. Other day-parts showcase syndicated talk shows like “Latino USA.” Although the reach is confined to these neighborhoods, WRTE is streaming for the city to enjoy.
