WGN Forecast Calls For LIVING UNITED
WGN TV Channel 9 kicked off its United Way Employee Campaign on Wednesday, October 14. Weatherman Tom Skilling spoke to nearly 200 WGN employees encouraging them to give to United Way and help those who are less fortunate. Skilling is a longtime United Way supporter and Tocqueville Society Member, which are individuals who contribute $10,0000 or more to United Way.
“Given our present economic condition, many of the people who will benefit by the multitude of programs United Way supports look a lot like you and me,” said Skilling. “I have been a supporter of United Way for many years because I believe United Way impacts more people, across the widest span, and addresses today’s most pressing issues as they occur.”
WGN’s Scott Bennett, a veteran United Way Campaign Leader has established a United Way Campaign goal of $60,000 for the WGN TV/CLTV Company. The dollars will be combined with the overall Tribune Company Campaign, which kicks off on Tuesday, Oct. 20. The Tribune Co. is working to raise half a million dollars for United Way.
