Kevin O’Neill

Kevin O’Neill is our Wednesday morning sports guy. His segment emphasizes what happens off the field as much as what happens on the field. All businesses have their intrigue, but the inner workings of sports organizations find their way into the public domain frequently. Unless a rant from the Chief spills into Kevin’s segment (not an unusual occurrence), he will highlight some of those sports related business issues; but be advised that those highlights usually come with an opinion.

Alan Mather

Alan Mather is the Principal at Lindblom Math & Science Academy at Chicago Public Schools, located in West Englewood on Chicago’s southside.
