CHICAGO — Author and human rights advocate Wayne Besen will kick off a new radio show, “I’ve Got Issues,” on Saturday on Chicago’s WCPT, an independent progressive talk radio station.

“In this critical election year, we need strong voices to frame the issues and help steer America in a progressive direction,” said Charles Gross, President of Newsweb Radio Company, which owns WCPT. “We are excited about this hard-hitting new show that will debate the critical local and national issues that affect our lives.”

Besen is the founder and Executive Director of Chicago-based Truth Wins Out (TWO), a non-profit organization that works to counter of anti-gay prejudice and anti-LGBT religious extremism, and author of “Anything But Straight: Unmasking the Scandals and Lies Behind the Ex-Gay Myth.”

“I’ve spent my entire life fighting for progressive causes and I’m honored to have this unique platform to advance the issues that I care deeply about,” said Besen. “There are those who want to turn back the clock in America, and our job as progressives is to keep the clock ticking forward. This show will be a vehicle for promoting innovative ideas and key progressive solutions.”

“I’ve Got Issues” will be broadcast in the Chicago area from 4-6 p.m. CDT, on channels 820-AM, 92.7 FM in the north, 92.5 in the west, and 99.9 in the south. Live streaming of WCPT is here.
