THE WGN RADIO HOMETOWN VOICES TOUR
Presented by Allstate
Jonathon Brandmeier broadcasts live from
The Summit of Uptown

Park Ridge, IL 60068
Friday, February 17
WGN Radio morning man Jonathon Brandmeier will take his show on the road on Friday, Feb. 17 as the WGN Radio Hometown Voices Tour presented by Allstate visits northwest suburban Park Ridge. From 5:30 to 9 a.m., Brandmeier will broadcast live from The Summit of Uptown retirement community located at 10 North Summit Avenue in the heart of Park Ridge.
Brandmeier solicited listener suggestions for a broadcast venue earlier this month and received hundreds of suggestions ranging from the Pickwick Theater to a local flower shop to the funeral home where scenes from the movie Blues Brothers were filmed. However, it was The Summit of Uptown that caught Brandmeier’s attention after an on-air call with the community’s receptionist who said that the residents don’t get many visitors, but love having them.
“I know it sounds weird — Brandmeier broadcasting from a retirement community? — but that’s what I wanted to do, something unexpected and interesting,” said Brandmeier. “My intention is to bring a fun, entertaining show to all of my listeners, plus the residents of The Summit at Uptown — many of whom don’t get many visitors. I’m envisioning this as a traveling vaudeville show for the residents!”
