WRTO-AM 12 in Chicago is owned by Hispanic Broadcasting (now Univision
Radio).  Believe me...that owner is nowhere NEAR Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  

AM 12 is now a Spanish talk oriented station.  The talk format moved there
after Univision decided to change WIND-AM 56 to a Spanish AC format
skewing towards older pop music from the 70s and 80s.

AM 12 used to be WLXX with a tropical music format and after that format
was ended, it was used for a few months to simulcast Chicago rimshotter's
Viva 93.5-103.1 (Joliet & Highland Park) FM's Spanish pop format.  

Call letters used during the simulcast were WVIV-AM to match Highland
Park's WVIV-FM 103.1 and Joliet's WVIX-FM 93.5.
