“Wintrust is the second largest bank holding company headquartered in Chicago and it’s very important for us to connect with the local community,” said Wehmer. “Radio ties it all together for Wintrust, and is the most important asset on the media side to achieve brand awareness.” The interview will air on a diverse group of radio stations, involving all formats, including music, news, sports, and Spanish language.

“Who better to speak of the power of local broadcast radio than radio itself,” suggests Dennis Lyle, president and CEO of the Illinois Broadcasters Association (IBA). “Local broadcast radio is undeniably one of the most powerful and effective vehicles available to advertisers.

The conversation was heard by one-third of Chicago’s population, according to Nielsen.
