I'm on-air overnights on WLIT. I've been broadcasting in Chicagoland for over 25 years... wow that's a long time. In addition to my on-air shift, I am also the Production Director, and do afternoon traffic reports. I have two sons, the oldest is a music education major at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington(he plays sax and violin.) And the youngest is a sophmore in high school and plays sax and guitar.
I'm not a huge baseball fan (unless I can get good seats at the old ballpark) but I never miss watching a Bears game. If I'm going to be away, I'll record it and watch it later that day or night!
I feel priveliged to be one of two male DJs on the air staff and am happy to provide some testosterone to the Lite.
The Chicago River traditionally gets turned a lovely shade orf Irish Green for the St. Patrick's Day Parade. But, did you know the dye that goes into the river is orange?
Then (perhaps with the help of a leprechaun or two) it magically turns that bright shade of green!
This is scheduled for 10:00, Saturday March 16th and can be best viewed from the East side of the bridge at Columbus Drive or upper and lower Wacker Drive between Columbus and Lake Shore Drive. This is a new location due to construction taking place this year.
