Santita Jackson Exits 1690 WVON Chicago



Santita Jackson has parted company with The Talk of Chicago WVON-AM (1690) after more than five years as midday personality at the Midway Broadcasting urban news/talk station.

The eldest daughter of the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson became a full-time talk-show host after producing TV and radio shows for her father. The move came about due to “cost-saving measures” at the station. “I have encouraged her to pursue a national platform, which she desires and so deserves,” said Melody Spann Cooper, chairman of Midway Broadcasting and general manager of WVON. “It is my hope that she will rejoin us in a more visible capacity.”

The Santita Jackson Show aired from 9am to noon weekdays. Source Time Out Chicago
