WGN Walk of Fame

Still not sure where it will be because WGN is moving to new studios in May, but we do know the five inductees. From this morning's RAMP newsletter...

WGN Radio/Chicago announced its 2018 Walk of Fame class Tuesday morning during The Steve Cochran Show -- legendary velvet-voiced announcer Pierre Andre, longtime sports-talk personalities David Kaplan and Chuck "The Swirsk" Swirsky, station meteorologist Roger Triemstra and current WGN traffic and transportation reporter Mary Van De Velde.

WGN Station Manager Todd Manley commented, "In this year's class, we give tribute to two prominent Chicago sports personalities, an affable weatherman, an announcer from the 'golden days of radio,' and a trusted voice in morning drive for over two decades."

This year's esteemed group of inductees will be celebrated in a ceremony and live broadcast on Friday, May 18 from 10-11:30am at the Tribune Tower at 435 North Michigan Avenue. This will be the last class to be honored at the Tribune Tower. [
