    Chicago's O'Hare and Midway airports now have their own radio stations.
    The 24-hour "AIR Chicago" was created for the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) by Clear Chanel Airports, a division of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc., and features smooth jazz music interspersed with airport traffic and weather reports, business news, information about the airports and advertising.

    Clear Channel has the indoor advertising contract at the Chicago airports "and this was an opportunity to start a different kind of branding, get more people interested in what we do at the airport, and reach out to a lot more people," said Karen Pride, CDA spokeswoman.

    Pride said the CDA has already recorded "vignettes" about holiday travel that will begin running on AIR Chicago in December and is working on others that might cover everything from sustainability efforts underway at the airports to the art and live music programs offered. There might also be opportunities for airline partners to record messages.
