De acordo com o Chicago Sun Times: «Chicago Public Radio opened a new chapter in local media history with the launch Monday of a unique interactive broadcast and online format. Vocalo.org inaugurated its Web site and began live streaming, billing itself as a gathering place that offers a mix of interviews, commentary, music and personal accounts of "life in our region." Over the air, Vocalo.org will be heard on WBEW-FM (89.5), based in Chesterton, Ind. The format's seven hosts are Bibiana Adames, Usama Alshaibi, Ayana Contreras, Darlene Jackson, Brian Johnson, Jesse Seay and Dan Weissman. At the outset, they're taking turns hosting one-hour shifts from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vocalo is a made-up name formed from the words "vocal" (for voices) and "zocalo" (which is Spanish for town plaza). Chicago Public Radio continues to air its traditional news, talk and information format on WBEZ-FM (91.5).»
