About us

The Hellenic Heartbeat, a division of the Hellenic Broadcasting Company, is the leading provider of news and quality Greek entertainment in the Midwestern United States.

Our team is comprised of many exceptional associates and professionals distinguished in the fields of broadcasting, literature, education, political analysis, science, history, theology and medicine.

Our primary goal is to educate, entertain, and promote Hellenic causes and the Christian Orthodox faith throughout the US.

The Hellenic Heartbeat has grown agressively throughout the years with the establishment and acquisition of several local Hellenic programs and stations. With overwhelming acceptance from viewers and demand for extended television programming, Hellenic Heartbeat initially expanded from a single hourly broadcast each week to three hour broadcasts each week to the current daily broadcasts covering a range of topics, events and news.

The Hellenic Heartbeat also produces, with the blessing of Metropolitan Iakovos of Chicago, the daily "Orthodox Spiritual Dialogues", radio program for the Greek Orthodox Diocese of Chicago. Established more than 30 years ago, it is the oldest Greek- American Christian religious radio program still in existence.

The recent redesign of this web site is the most recent addition to the Hellenic Heartbeat media family with in-depth coverage of community news and events, Internet-based audio and video capabilities, as well as up-to-the-minute updates and global reach.

Altogether, the Hellenic Heartbeat currently offers audiences an array of programming through:

  • Comcast 391 & 338 - Sundays from 3-6 pm
  • Digital & Analog TV Ch. 41- Monday - Friday from 4:30 PM to 5:00 PM
  • ATT&T U-Verse Ch. 41
  • Digital Ch. 13.2 WCHO
  • Radio WEEF 1430 AM - Monday - Friday from 11 am to 12 noon.

We at the Hellenic Heartbeat are proud of our programs, history and positive role in the community.
