There is a rumor floating among those who tweet about Chicago media that the much-loved radio team of Steve King and Johnnie Putman are soon to be replaced in the over-night hours. (As James will say, Good Lord I am losing my babysitters!)
If true this is very upsetting news as Him and Her, as fans often refer to Steve and Johnnie, have been a staple of my life for at least 15 years. I have often mentioned them on my blog, and was thrilled when I was a guest on their show concerning of all things, cars.
I had bought a new VW Beetle and from time to time Steve and Johnnie spoke with new car owners about the purchase. I had always wanted to work at WGN, and finally had my 20 minutes on the airwaves. They had contacted me a week before the interview, but the night of the broadcast I had a wicked cold. I was however determined to shine and I had more tea and honey and caffeine than any person should consume in a night. The recording they sent to me along with a lobster gram for two remains a night I will never forget.
There will be much more to be said about this news in the days to come on CP.
