That said, WCKG is all over the place when it comes to a consistant format. They play heavy metal music during weeknights in addition to the synidcated talk shows such as Alex Jones.
Also, their website is a mess. It lists the talk shows/infowars stuff but doesn't mention WBMX or Rebel Radio. (Their android/IOS app description does however). I have no idea what WCKG airs on Sundays.
Aside from the heavy metal and infowars programs, WCKG ownership is mainly a shoutout to past Chicago radio brands such as the talk radio years (1996-2007) of the original WCKG 105.9, Q101 (1992-2011), and the original WBMX 107.2 (and by extention, WBUT 103.5 Jammin Oldies/the Beat from 1998-2001, 1990s-era B96, and the old Energy 92.7 of 2001-2003 when it comes to the history of Chicago dance music radio)
Here was WCKG's weekday lineup a few months ago prior to expanding airtime for Alex Jones/Infowars. The owner (Matt) seems invested in AJ and even fills in as a host on occasion.
3am-7am - Blue Collar Radio (rock-leaning country)
7am-3pm - Q101 (altenative)
3pm-6pm - some talk show
6pm-10pm - Rebel Radio (heavy metal/rock)
10-2am M-Th - replay of alex jones show (talk/politics/conspiracies)
10pm F-Sa - WBMX.com (Dance/Adult Rhythmic)
