GUESS WHO’S BACK?
I was wondering when good ‘ol Northie would show up. Now I know. Phil Rosenthal reports in Wednesday’s Chicago Tribune that Mike North is taking his show to the web. But of all places, it’s a restaurant’s website.
“Perhaps the only person outrageous enough to suggest that former WSCR-AM 670 mainstay Mike North has anything in common with Barry Manilow would be North himself, and guess who’s tryin’ to get the feeling again.
“What Rich Melman is paying me to do is what the Las Vegas Hilton pays Barry Manilow to do,” the hot-dog-man-turned-sports-talker explained Tuesday, in announcing his latest venture, a two-hour, five-day-a-week Internet program that will stream on the Lettuce Entertain You Web site of Melman’s Wildfire restaurants, starting Monday. “He wants people to visit the Wildfire Web site.”
Billed as “The Mike North Webio Show”, North begins next Monday–the day after the Bears season opener. You can catch him from 9 to 11 am at the Wildfire website.
