On tonight’s WGN News at Nine, I’ll be profiling WGN Radio Host Brian Noonan. He’s brought a bright personality and sense of humor to the WGN airwaves for more than six years, currently co-hosting WGN Sports Night with David Kaplan and Andrea Darlas.

Brian had struggled with his weight for as long as he could remember, but in the summer of 2011, it rose to a new level. He wasn’t happy with the way he looked. He was in pain. It was July 11, 2011 – the day he would become a new person.

What’s followed is a year and a half of remarkable weight loss and personal transformation. He used the Weight Watchers points system to get his diet in order, and slowly incorporated more exercise. While Brian didn’t talk about his change too much on the airwaves, he would post photos on Facebook, along with encouraging comments and thoughts for others who were considering following in his footsteps.

As of the time of our interview, he had lost 157 pounds. He plans to lose ten more, then focus on keeping it off forever. If you’re in a similar situation and would like to contact Brian with any questions, he would love to hear from you. You can find him at the places below…
