Don Wade and Roma, Chicago’s longest running Morning Drive team, have been entertaining and enlightening Chicagoans with the news of the day since 1985. But they’ve been a team off-the-air even longer — having married in 1979.

Their fast-paced dialogue with local or national newsmakers, whether on politics, entertainment, business, or life, provides the inside story on hot issues. WLS 890-AM listeners leap in with their opinions and sparkling conversation. And this talented team has been recognized many times over the years, earning accolades including Talker Magazine’s Heavy Hitter 100, Local Radio Legends of America, & the Marconi Award.

Don Wade is invariably passionate, witty, usually conservative, and always opinionated about the political and social issues of the day. He thrives on “exposing and debunking the media bias and spin which distort the world around us.” On the other hand, Roma (aka: The Voice of Reason) provides the thoughtful balance that drives Don mad. They walk to the beat of two different drums and yet are happy together 24/7.
