Rep. Joe Walsh speaks to supporters at The Cubby Bear in Wrigleyville on Thursday, Dec., 8.
It appears constituents in the 8th Congressional District will be able to still hear from Joe Walsh.
The news was first reported Wednesday by Time Out Chicago's Robert Feder.
While there had been no official confirmation from station officials as of late Thursday, Walsh has -- on his new official Twitter account -- retweeted a congratulatory message from the organization "Americans for Prosperity."
@walshfreedom Congrats Joe on the coming WIND show! We look forward to tuning in.
