Richard Chew

Richard Chew | Featured Speaker

As a long-time Chicago Guy, Richard was born and raised in Chicago and Southwestern Michigan (Union Pier). He is proud of the fact that he has visited all 50 of the great states of The United States of America and keeps his passport current to make sure traveling the world is always a “ready to go” item. He and his wife Anne love the City and Suburbs of Chicago and all their greatness.

The new show ChewViews will focus on moving our political, social, economic, gender and cultural conversation forward and to make sure we don’t just save our democracy in 2024, but also help to create a roadmap for all Progressives to be more regularly involved in their political and social destinies. Chews Views will be intellectual and focus on positive talk and solutions…but don’t get it “Twisted”…we may bring some “smashmouth dialogue” to the program just to make sure you are awake, not just “woke” Monday through Friday 6-8AM! Looking forward to the Mornings on WCPT- AM820!
