"Huddle" staff narrows announcer candidates to two finalists


Jennifer.jpgThe protracted audition process for a new on-air announcer for the weekly "Chicago Huddle" football show on ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7 is down to two finalists -- Shae Peppler and Jennifer Wicks. Both will appear on the season-opening edition of the "Huddle," which will be taped Sept. 11, at the ESPN Zone in River North at 4 p.m. At the end of the taping, "Huddle" host Ryan Chiaverini and the show's producing staff will name the winner, who will have a place on the show for at least this season. In the meantime, video clips of the two finalists can be viewed at

The first "Huddle" show will air Sept. 13. at 10:30 a.m. The "Huddle" producers haven't yet decided if they will repeat the audition process to select a different announcer for the show's 2010 season.


Wow have followed this Huddle promotion for Ch. 7 from start to finish! Will you do this for the other media in town as well?
Your love for Ch. 7 is bordering on the ridiculous.
Their promotions, their ratings...all the news for Ch. 7 is fit to print. Major favoritism here.
Hope you report the bad news from them as well.

NBC made a huge mistake ..... didn't pick the obvious choice Lisa Plaza.
