CBS Radio Chicago’s Candidate Marketing was created to help any candidate create a turnkey marketing campaign that includes:

  • on-air radio
    (including any of the 6 Chicago CBS Radio stations)

  • on-line streaming
    (with accompanying web images and links)

  • digital advertising

  • geo-targeted e-mail deployment

These marketing elements can stand alone or be easily integrated with your direct mail and grassroots campaign.


Our CBS Radio stations reach 3.6 million registered voters each week! That’s 63% of all the registered voters in the Chicago metro area.
