About

WPNA 1490-AM is a time-brokered radio station licensed to Oak Park, IL. The station has served the Chicagoland community since 1951. Currently owned by Alliance Communications, WPNA hosts entertainment, news, and special interest radio programs for various ethnic and cultural groups. While the majority of our programming is Polish language news, talk, sports, and entertainment, we also feature such unique longstanding broadcasts as the Hagerty Irish Program – the longest running Irish show in the USA, and a variety of Polka shows. WPNA is home to many community favorites, including The Doris Davenport Show – “All Local All the Time,” Lucia Sliwa’s Open Microphone, The O’Connor Show, St. Volodymyr Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral program, Polish Highlanders Alliance of North America program, and so much more. Because we offer such distinctive, hard-to-find broadcasts, our listeners are loyal and dedicated. In addition to the time-honored and independent brokered programs, WPNA reaches a wide audience through our popular proprietary shows, such as Stacja Chicago and Nocna Stacja.
