Two true Chicago characters are teaming up to host a new evening radio show on Sovereign City Radio Services' WNTD-AM (950). Beginning Jan. 20, James "Skinny" Sheahan, former director of the Mayor's Office of Special Events, and Mike "Houli" Houlihan, a columnist for the Irish American News and a former features columnist (2003 to 2005) for the Sun-Times, will join forces for "The Skinny & Houli Show" each Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m.
The duo reportedly will discuss what's happening in Chicago every week -- which would suggest the two hosts will have a lot of territory to cover. The topics of discussion will include politics, sports and entertainment. The show also hopes to feature guests who are making a positive impact on the lives of Chicagoans. In addition, a "Special Olympics Spotlight" segment will focus on an athlete, coach or volunteer and his or her particular outstanding achievement.
