Steve Dale's New WGN Schedule

Steve Dale's New WGN Schedule
I might as well say publicly what I told WGN management, the last time the station made wholesale changes, moving to a harder edge (some may suggest bizarre edge),I understand how I didn’t belong. When I moved over to WLS-AM, people still associated me with WGN, when I moved back to. The station is again... Read more »

Thumbnail image for 'A Pit Bull Is Simply a Dog'
A Pit Bull (or dog merely defined as a Pit Bull) is merely another dog….and what you see here is what dogs do, even dogs defined by Pit Bulls – if given the change. Dogs are all about love. Dogs are about forgiveness, sometimes in a way which mere humans are not.

Dogfighting App Is No Game

Dogfighting App Is No Game
By Steve Dale I’m a journalist and, of course, I believe in free speech. However, certain lines are drawn all the time. For example, I don’t know of a video game or telephone app that teaches players how to abuse children. However, there’s now what I believe to be a comparable app through which participants...
