WFMT 98.7 FM is located in Chicago, Illinois. WFMT was established in 1951 by Bernie and Rita Jacobs and now it is owned by Window To The World Communications, Inc. (WTTW), one of Chicago’s two PBS television stations. Like most radio stations, WFMT provides comprehensive classical music programming, combining original productions, distinctive specialty programs, live concert presentations and the talents of local and nationally-recognized hosts.  Unlike most radio stations, WFMT devotes enormous resources to live and taped presentations by performing artists. A unique feature of this commercial station is that they air no pre-recorded (by non-station hosts) advertising on-air. WFMT’s programming is also available online.


Examples of programs: Live concerts from the Fay and Daniel Levin Performance Studio, Ravinia Festival and Grant Park Symphony, Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin, The Midnight Special with Mike Nichols
