PD Mick Lee said, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year and we’re so happy that millions of Chicagoan’s choose to make 93.9 MYfm part of their families’ annual holiday traditions. In our 17th year as Chicago’s Christmas Music Station, get ready for lots of fun holiday surprises in the coming weeks!”

“With all the turmoil in the world today, we felt Chicago needed a little more Christmas right now,” said Matt Scarano, President of iHeartMedia Markets Group’s Chicago Region. “The extension of the Christmas music season will allow Chicagoans to get into the Holiday spirit even more this year. “
