WIND-AM has announced an incredible live stage event entitled "One Night Only." This special evening will feature WIND-AM/AM 560's entire line-up of weekday on-air personalities, headlined by Glenn Beck and Dennis Miller.
Scheduled to appear on stage during "One Night Only" will be WIND-AM's weekday Chicago-based hosts John Howell, Amy Jacobson, and Steve Cochran. Also appearing live on stage will be the station's syndicated hosts Beck, Miller, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt, and Mike Gallagher.
This event marks the first time ever that the entire WIND-AM line-up will be on one stage, in the same city, and on the same night.
As the event is to be a celebration of WIND-AM, it will also feature past hosts who will pay tribute to the station's long history on Chicago's airwaves. Already scheduled to take part in the event is Chicago radio legend Clark Weber. The station may have another legendary WIND-AM name or two to announce in the coming weeks, as well.
"One Night Only" will take place on Saturday, November 3rd beginning at 7:00pm at the Akoo Theatre (formerly the Rosemont Theatre), located at 5400 N. River Road, in Rosemont, IL.
Unlike the station's past eras as a music, talk, or news/talk station, the current line-up of WIND-AM hosts are very political in nature. This live event is scheduled to take place just three days just three days before the presidential election. Fans can expect plenty of political talk at the show. Organizers want it to be much more than just political commentary & rhetoric, however. Expect there to be plenty of comedy, as well. (Dennis Miller made his mark in entertainment as a stand-up comedian and "Weekend Update" host on "Saturday Night Live," while Steve Cochran has long been a top-drawing stand-up comedian around Chicago.) The event is also to be a celebration of the station, as well as the power and passion of radio.
Jeff Reisman, General Manager of WIND-AM 560, issued a statement today, saying: "It will truly be historic to have this collection of names all in the same place at such an important time. We are excited to put this event together for our audience and for all the fans of our talk show hosts."
