Best Radio Station

WGNU (920 AM)

The mystery of WGNU's call letters was finally revealed at station co-founder Chuck Norman's funeral earlier this year. "It stands for 'We've Got National Unity,'" declared Norman's wet nurse as she wept into Earl Holt's handkerchief. Just kidding. National unity is about the last thing WGNU stands for -- that's the way Norman wanted it, and that's the beauty of it. Traditional Democrats and Republicans are in short supply on this local talk station, which is to KMOX what a page of blotter acid is to a dime bag of dirt weed. From the rantings of white conspiracy theorists like the Couch Potato to the rantings of black conspiracy theorists like Lizz Brown, WGNU can always be counted on to provide (someone's version of) the truth.
