'Chicago Huddle' Returns

September 9, 2009 ABC7 sports reporter Ryan Chiaverini, is joined by alternating Chicago Bear co-hosts Desmond Clark, Jason McKie and newest HUDDLE team member, Anthony Adams, to kick off a fun and entertaining football show, THE CHICAGO HUDDLE, airing Sundays at 10:30 am during Bear season. Desmond Clark will join Chiaverini as co-host when THE CHICAGO HUDDLE premieres in its third season on Sunday, September 13 at 10:30 am on ABC7.

The wait will soon be over for the announcement of the 2009 CHICAGO HUDDLE Spokesperson. After Huddle fans cast their votes, and Ryan Chiaverini weighed in, it's now third and long for the two HUDDLE finalists, Jennifer Wicks and Shae Peppler. Wicks and Peppler will audition one final time during the September 11 taping -- and the decision of who makes the team will be announced at the end of the show.

As always, THE CHICAGO HUDDLE mixes it up with sports talk, humor and music in the high-energy atmosphere of ESPN Zone (43 East Ohio Street, Chicago) where the show is taped on Fridays at 4:00 pm. beginning September 11. Chiaverini and co-hosts Clark, McKie and Adams will look forward to the team's upcoming games and the new challenges the Bears face with each opponent as well as offer the latest on what's happening around the NFL.

Each week on THE CHICAGO HUDDLE: ESPN 1000 Bears reporter, Jeff Dickerson, will offer his analysis on the Bears this season; a "Bear mystery guest" will join Chiaverini and co-hosts to talk shop; and the distinctive sound of Chicago's "Lee DeWyze Band" will add to the fun.

While giving viewers the inside story on the Bears and their upcoming opponents, Chiaverini will also fire questions to a different Bear player each week during his "2-Minute Warning" segment.

Larry Snyder is the producer of THE CHICAGO HUDDLE.
