ChicagoNow Radio: November 6

Amy Guth

Amy Guth is digital news editor for the Tribune's books section and blog and is co-host of ChicagoNow Radio on News 720 WGN alongside Alex Quigley. Also? Author, adventuress and grade-a sass-mouth.

Breaking news, Chicago! This week on ChicagoNow Radio on WGN with Amy Guth and Alex Quigley from 9 a.m. to noon, we have all of these awesome guests:


9 a.m.
Lyletta the "Woodlawn Wonder" is full of sass and haaaates her developer. That's why she writes I Hate My Developer. She'll kick off Saturday's show and tell us why. Give us a shout if you hate your developer, too. We'll take your calls at (312) 591-7200.

9:30 a.m.
Emily Zanotti of American Princess was in the WGN studios on election night and is going to tell us about all the shenanigans that go on behind the scenes during election coverage, and we'll talk about shenanigans we saw at the polls. (Ahem, my polling place, I'm looking your direction.) Call us with your own election day horror stories. Follow @emzanotti on Twitter.


10 a.m.
That Jennifer Fernicola Ronay of Stop and Blog the Roses is always looking on the bright side. And not in that annoying way, either. In the funny way. The best way, if you ask me. She'll join us to talk about all the terrible crap in the world that we can reframe and laugh at. So take that, terrible crap! Take that! Find her on Twitter as @fernronay.

10:30 a.m.
Lenox Magee of Lenox and the Second City is a funny man. He's also on a crusade to make it into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame. If being smart, funny and bold on the radio while tackling some major-league, serious issues can help qualify him, we are glad to do our part. (He better invite us to the Hall of Fame induction ceremony, is all I'm saying. I can't speak for Quigley, but, man oh man, I always like a reason to don evening wear.) Find Lenox as @LenoxMagee on Twitter.

11 a.m.
Tab Bamford of Daily Chicago Sports Tab is a funny guy. He also knows a whole helluva lot about sports. Way more than I know, admittedly (despite the considerable wit, charm and wealth of sports knowledge I bring to RedEye's Friday morning 5-on-5 item I do each weel with Quigley and the RedEye Sports crew), and so he will join us to talk about all of it: the Bears, the Blackhawks, the Bulls, and that awesome underwater hockey league I'm trying to get going around here. Catch up with him as @The1Tab on twitter.

11:30 a.m.
We close out the show this week talking about a couple of other hats Alex Quigley and I will be wearing this week, the upcoming ChicagoNow tweet-up on Tuesday, November 9, and the announcement of a cool, new bonus feature of the show. Boom. Oh, and I will tell the worst joke I've ever heard in my life. If that doesn't entice, I don't know what will!

Find the latest on our spiffy Facebook page, too, and by following me (@AmyGuth) and Alex Quigley (@AlexQuigley) on Twitter.
