This year marks the sixth class for the Walk of Fame: Legends of WGN Radio. It includes four native Chicagoans — two of whom are present-day voices — as well as one who hosted a show for 60 consecutive years, and a behind-the-scenes staff member with 52 years of service to the station. The honorees are Andrea Darlas, “Tenpin Tattler” Sam Weinstein, Marlene Wells and John Williams.
“There’s unforgettable wisdom in each of this year’s inductees,” said Station Manager and Vice President of Content Todd Manley. “They are among the greatest WGN ambassadors and inventive entertainers.”
The announcement comes one day in advance of the station’s 95th birthday, marked on June 1.
Listeners can tune in to the Walk of Fame induction ceremony broadcast live from the Chicago Architecture Center, Friday, September 13 at 10 a.m.
