WCEV (1450 AM) is a time brokered radio station licensed to Cicero, Illinois, USA, the station serves the Chicago area. The station is currently owned by Migala Communications Corporation.[1] It airs an ethnic programming format.

Since 1979, the 1450 AM frequency allocated to Cicero has been shared by two separately owned stations, after two companies that had filed competing license applications for the facility reached an agreement to divide the broadcast week between them. WCEV is on the air from 1PM to 10PM Monday through Friday; Midway Broadcasting, which has operated as WXOL, WVON and WRLL, broadcasts on 1450 during the remaining hours.
