’Tis the season! Christmas music is coming back, and 93.9 LITE FM will start playing holiday songs around-the-clock.
The station made the announcement of its annual Christmas music comeback on Tuesday morning (November 2). The switch is set to happen on Wednesday afternoon (November 3) at 4:05 p.m.
Christmas tunes “by today’s biggest artists along with classic Christmas hits” will broadcast through the end of the year, according to the announcement by 93.9 LITE FM. On-air personalities Melissa Forman, Robin Rock and Mick Lee will host a two-hour commercial-free kick-off event, which is slated to begin at 4 p.m. on Wednesday (the trio will also take song requests and play on-air games, getting into the “holiday spirit” with listeners).
“This year marks our 21st celebration as Chicago’s Christmas music station,” said Mick Lee, 93.9 LITE FM Program Director and Afternoon Show Host. “93.9 LITE FM is ready to spread holiday cheer, joy and hope across Chicagoland by playing everyone’s favorite Christmas tunes.”
Matt Scarano, President of iHeartMedia Chicago, added that he’s “so proud of 93.9 LITE FM’s 21-year holiday tradition. 93.9 LITE FM shares one of the best presents of the season with our listeners as Chicago’s Christmas music station.”
