Charles Butler – Gone from WVON – Joins WIND
Charles Butler is now on WIND 560am Chicago Saturdays 6pm-7pm.
Charles Butler is gone from WVON 1690am Chicago M-F 7pm-10pm.
I did not hear Charles on WVON this past Thursday. I was VERY ANGRY when I found out two days later on the Salim Muwakkil show that Charles was no longer on the station. How happy I felt when I found out he’s now on WIND.
WVON is a very “touchy feely”, “emotionally immature”, “love my preacher and the Democratic Party”, “dumb community activist” station. And, contrary to what you may think, I do not like saying this about WVON. I WANT THIS STATION TO SUCCEED. I want you advertisers to support this station. I want WVON to be the most important station in Chicago and the nation. There are too many negative images of Black people in the media, and having a station that shows Blacks in a positive light (or, at least, a more balanced light) is why WVON IS SO IMPORTANT!! However, WVON has not done this. Listen to the commercials. Listen to the hosts. Listen to the callers. It’s all geared towards Blacks with a “woe is me”, “community activist”, “give me something for nothing”, “let the government save us” mentality. AND CHARLES BUTLER IS NONE OF THE THINGS I JUST LISTED!
It was a natural progression for Charles to go to WIND. This station is EXTREMELY CONSERVATIVE, but there is a lot of COMMON SENSE among it’s local hosts. (Notice I said LOCAL. The national hosts are in line with whatever they are told to discuss and rarely deviate from the conservative groupthink.) This is why Charles will do well on this station. It saddens me that he’ll only be on for one hour, once a week, as opposed to being on three hours a night, five days a week. Hopefully, this will change, as his popularity grows.
By the way, this is a good move for WIND. By having Charles Butler, he will bring a whole new audience to this station. And that’s good for both ratings and advertisers. WIND has better advertising like Gold, 2nd Amendment Info, Extended Car Warranties, Diet Programs, various Online Services like Webinars, and more. WVON, on the other hand, has none of these services. They have too many “community activist” commercials, too many PSA’s, too many of the same national advertisers, and very few local advertisers. What a shame.
I am proud of Charles Butler. He represents a whole population of Black people who want to be a part of the American Dream and who do not wallow in self pity on what happened prior to 1865 or even 1968. He openly says the things that many Blacks mutter in private:
Slavery ended. Stop making excuses about your conditions.
Jim Crow is over. Stop making excuses about your conditions.
Racism still exists, but it’s not an excuse for Blacks to not strive for excellence.
The Democratic Party should not get Black support. Diversify your votes towards those who support your interests.
CRIMINALS SHOULD NOT BE LOVED BY THE BLACK COMMUNITY. THEY SHOULD BE VIEWED AS PURE GARBAGE THAT NEED TO BE PURGED FROM THE COMMUNITY.
BLACK CHILDREN WHO ARE GOOD AND WANT TO SUCCEED SHOULD BE FULLY SUPPORTED BY THE BLACK COMMUNITY AND NOT RIDICULED AS TRYING TO BE “WHITE”.
Once again, Charles Butler is now on WIND 560am on Saturdays from 6pm-7pm.
Here are a few links:
If you’re Black, spread the word, listen to his show, and learn something. If you’re not Black, listen to his show and learn that Blacks are as diversified in thoughts as everyone else.
Charles has taken some time off from WIND to pursue other projects, as of October 2011.
He has appeared online at such places as BlogTalkRadio, YouTube, etc. He’s also been seen on FOX News.
