St. Augustine created “Earth Matters” as part of a series of short form vignettes called “Minutes That Matter” that focus on life empowering topics dealing with money, health, parenting and more. “Bill and I have known each other for 20 years, but this is the first time we have had the opportunity to officially work together on a project.”
Matt Comings, Operations Manager at WCPT could see the connection and value for the “progressive” listeners of the station. “Adding Earth Matters to our lineup is a great way to inform our listeners of important environmental issues and it’s also a great advertising vehicle for local sponsors to be part of something unique on the radio.”

The 60 second vignettes are produced at Kurtis Productions and will debut in rotation on WCPT March 11th and will also be heard on the online stream at www.chicagosprogressivetalk.com
