Chicagoverse 159 - Justin Kaufmann (WGN Radio)

Chicago broadcaster Justin Kaufmann visits Dynasty Podcasts to take a break from leading his own interviews, and talk about his two decades in radio, in an interview recorded at Virgin Hotels.

Kaufmann reflects on getting his start at Chicago NPR affiliate WBEZ, and touches on his involvement with WBEZ spin-off station Vocalo. The broadcaster also speaks on the live, local approach in his current work, hosting The Download on WGN Radio, five nights week. Kaufmann reveals how his background as a radio producer served as invaluable experience in preparing him to be an on-air talent, and shares how WGN’s reputation opens the door in setting up sizable interviews.
