As ALL ACCESS originally told you last week (NET NEWS 9/14), EMMIS Rocker WLUP(97.9 THE LOOP)/CHICAGO morning air personality JONATHAN BRANDMEIER invited the paralyzed MARIO WALLENDA of THE FLYING WALLENDAS to travel across a high-wire above the CHICAGO RIVER on a motorized "Skycycle" live on the air in front of the world-famous MERCHANDISE MART today (9/19).
Well, MARIO made the journey across the river in one piece, and the event proved to be an enormous success for the station, earning tons of TV coverage from local media outlets. For pics and more from this awesome event, visit www.wlup.com and click on the "WALLENDA" graphic.
