You Be ‘Iiiin’

Urban Contemporary WGCI-FM is launching a new show featuring local hip-hop and R&B artists called Go Ill.

The program premieres this Saturday night at 9 p.m. and run in that time slot every week. It will also feature interviews with the artists behind the music. WGCI has often been criticized for not featuring enough local artists on its station (other than R. Kelly and Jennifer Hudson.)

The program derives its title from the last two letters of Chicago and the first three letters of Illinois. While some people may have a problem with its name, Go Ill is a far better name than say, oh, Cavemen and Anchorwoman.
