The Chris Plante Show – live from Washington DC – offers you the inside word on the day’s top news stories with razor-sharp insight and a unique sense of humor. Without all that yelling and anger that you've had to put up with for years from the Bloviating Blowhard, Rush Limbaugh.

He was the first to report that the Pentagon had been attacked.He was also recognized by the Television Academy (the Emmy people) for his September 11th reporting.
His knowledge and experience – along with a gift for storytelling – combine to create one of the most fast-paced, entertaining programs on the radio today. Listeners in D.C. have enjoyed his insight and intelligent conversation for the last decade, and we think you'll agree.
