Pat Cassidy: Nice News Guy, nice career

Pat Cassidy, who's the morning guy at WBBM Newsradio in Chicago, talks about his sweet career, which includes several years at WBBM, where they seemed to hold his job while he joined Erich Muller (Mancow)'s show at WLS; 25 years at WMAQ; and various gigs at WGLD, WBMX (where he was the only white guy), WNIS, and WEXI (where he was a music program director). He also talks about what he calls "the most embarrassing incident of all time" for the first time publicly, why he went to WLS, what Mort Downey was really like, the future of news radio, if an agent helps, and more.
