He’s been called a ‘man of many hats’ and rightfully so. Dean Richards started out as a lottery and booth announcer at WGN and has appeared on every broadcast the station has ever produced. Including here on Daytime Chicago. He’s joining us now to help us celebrate WGN’s 75th anniversary.

Daytime Chicago airs weekdays on WGN from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
