Amazon Echo Dot (Dave Marzullo / WGN Radio)

You can listen to WGN Radio on your Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, or any other Alexa-enabled device:

  • Listen live whenever you want with the command “Alexa, play WGN.” (If that doesn’t work, try “Alexa, play WGN Radio from TuneIn.”) When we have bonus programming such as the Bill and Wendy bonus hour, simultaneous Blackhawks and Northwestern games or extended coverage of a news event, the second stream can be heard with the command “Alexa, play WGN Extra” (or you might have to say “Alexa, play WGN Extra on TuneIn”).
  • Listen to the latest headlines on your schedule with a Flash Briefing from the voices you trust in the WGN Radio newsroom. Just use your Alexa app to search for “WGN” under Skills or Settings-Flash Briefing and enable us in your Flash Briefing preferences. Then you’ll be able request a WGN Radio news update on-demand whenever you want with the command “Alexa, play the headlines.”
