Mary Sandberg Boyle and Orion Samuelson (Stephanie Menendez / WGN Radio)

The first debate is in the books and we’ve all survived. Trump was Trump, Hillary didn’t cough, and Lester Holt went to the after show a little bit late. Rick Pearson, Pat Brady, Jason DeSanto, Eric Adelstein, and Aaron Katersky all joined us to rehash the nonsense. We had an awesome 17-year-old high school senior at Morton High School, Juan Valdez, knock our socks off for ‘Kid of the Week.’ We did the WDD picks a little early because Cochran will be off the next few days. Lastly, we tipped our caps to the great Orion Samuelson who joined us for a little trip down memory lane. His 56 years on WGN is not only impressive, but his recollection of the details from his time here is incredible. A career that’s still going strong. Thanks Big O!
