From the archives: Classic TV commercials featuring the WGN Radio Bird and Hollywood celebrities

WGN Archives

It’s springtime and the sound of tweeting birds is once again heard in the air. So we decided to revisit a classic series of TV commercials featuring our own bird, known for his greeting, “Hi, I’m Chicago,” along with Hollywood celebrities including Jane Curtin, Alan Alda, Vanna White, Howard Hesseman and George Wendt. This campaign ran in the 1980s and also featured a series of print ads, some of which can be seen here.
