CUMULUS Talk WLS-A/CHICAGO has added local television personalities, and brothers, DAN and ANTHONY PONCE for a new weekend show to air SUNDAYs 1-3p (CT). DAN PONCE is a reporter for TRIBUNE CW affiliate WGN-TV, while ANTHONY is a reporter at NBC O&O WMAQ-TV (NBC 5). The brothers will also bring their father PHIL PONCE on as a regular guest; PHIL hosts "CHICAGO TONIGHT" on PBS affiliate WTTW-TV.
"There's always so much more to report beyond time we have on TV. This is the perfect opportunity to tell the story behind the story," said DAN PONCE. Brother ANTHONY added, "We're hoping to give listeners a peek into the world of CHICAGO journalism, and hear their opinions about the week's biggest stories and how they're covered."
"DAN and ANTHONY have enormous energy, contacts and hands-on experience with CHICAGO's biggest news stories which they combine with an organic sense of entertainment. More importantly, the PONCE BROTHERS bring an enthusiastic thirst for feedback -- giving WLS listeners a unique opportunity to talk back to the 'news media.'" said Operations Director DREW HAYES.
"It will be an unbelievable kick to contribute to a show my sons are hosting. I hope to bring some occasional context that comes with having been around for a while," added PHIL PONCE. "Their role is to bring the kind of energy to the show they had as kids and argued over who got the top bunk...or more importantly, who got the last piece of pumpkin pie."
