WSCR morning drive co-hosts Mike Mulligan and Brian Hanley will co-host the event, along with WBBM-AM (780) Bears radio analyst Tom Thayer. "Anyone interested in finding out more on the business aspect of professional sports would be hard pressed to find such a breadth of information anywhere else," said Rod Zimmerman, CBS Radio Chicago market manager.
