GLT Main Channel Stream

The "main channel" stream is what listeners in central Illinois hear over the air on 89.1 FM. Weekdays, the daytime schedule is anchored by our homegrown, daily newsmagazine, GLT's Sound Ideas, along with NPR standards like Morning Edition, 1A, Here & Now, and All Things Considered.

At night, we bring you focused music programs and a mix of hand-selected jazz that emphasizes beautiful melodies and rhythms that swing. Weekends are filled with laughter (Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!, Ask Me Another), wonder (Radiolab, TED Radio Hour), and culture (Bullseye with Jesse Thorn, This American Life).
