The show will be hosted by Chicago actor Scott Duff, who'll be joined by a weekly guest co-host."We are extremely excited about the new show," Duff told ChicagoPride.com.

"It's the perfect way to kick off your Sunday Funday." Duff, a founding member of About Face Theatre, also hosts an LGBT-themed showcase at Chicago's Laugh Factory.Michael Damsky, a veteran Chicago radio executive, created the programming initiative with Windy City Media Group, the parent company of Windy City Times.In addition the station will air one-minute segments from Out Chicago hourly from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, according to RobertFeder.com.
