Former CBS RADIO Sports WSCR-A (670 THE SCORE)/CHICAGO hosts MIKE NORTH and DAN JIGGETTS are joining CBS O&O WBBM-TV (CBS 2)/CHICAGO to host a new morning TV show, "MONSTERS AND MONEY IN THE MORNING." NORTH and JIGGETTS have been hosting a TV morning show on COMCAST SPORTSNET CHICAGO and were involved in the ill-fated CHICAGO SPORTS WEBIO online sports station.
The new TV show, starting FEBRUARY 1st and airing 5-7a CT weekdays, will feature CHICAGO SUN-TIMES columnist TERRY SAVAGE on financial matters and former CNBC business reporter MIKE HEGEDUS, plus CBS 2's SUSAN CARLSON with news and KEY KLEIST with weather. Contributors from sister News WBBM-A will also appear on the show.
"This is a Monster team we've put together," said CBS2 VP/News Dir. JEFF KIERNAN. "MIKE NORTH and DAN JIGGETTS are CHICAGO's best known Sports Talk duo. Their rapport was developed during their years on the air on THE SCORE radio station and their TV skills were developed during the last year on COMCAST SPORTSNET CHICAGO. TERRY SAVAGE has more than 20 years of experience as a reporter and commentator on the economy and personal finance. She is known, liked and respected by everyone in the industry. MIKE HEGEDUS is a dynamic television journalist who spent the last 10 years of his career with CNBC, traveling the US and the world profiling successful businesses and the people who made them work. We can't wait to put the four of them together on television for CHICAGO."
