Even though we’re trying our best to recycle our body clocks, we’re still finding ways to have fun after the sun goes down.
Last Sunday night we attended the annual WGN Quarter Centurion dinner. On our way, we stopped by and picked up Roy Leonard. When we arrived, we sat with Bob Collins‘ wife, Christine, and former WGN Sports Editor, Jack Rosenberg.
As the night progressed, we caught up with “the weather dodger,” Roger Triemstra, our former newsman, Dick Sutliff, Dean Richards, “Gabby” a/k/a Dianne Huske (Faithful listeners recall “Gabby” was Bob Collins’ secretary/assistant.), former WGN Radio News Director, Tom Peterson and, while talking with Orion Samuelson, got the scoop from the “Big O” about his upcoming book, “You Can’t Dream Big Enough.”
We’ll be telling you more about Orion’s book in a future post.
There was a lot more of course, but those are just some of the “talking points.” Over the course of the evening, we had the chance to swap stories with many additional friends from both the Radio and TV side of the WGN family. All in all, it was a VERY good night and we didn’t have to go to work bleary-eyed after the event.
We thought you might like to see a picture that was taken while we were hanging out with WGN-TV engineer, John Bobera and Roy Leonard.
