Crain’s Chicago hires Guth to host daily podcast
Amy Guth, a Chicago journalist and weekend personality at Tribune Broadcasting news/talk WGN 720-AM, has been hired to host a new daily podcast for Crain’s Chicago Business, reports Robert Feder.
Feder reports, “Starting March 4, “The Daily Gist” will upload by 4:30 p.m. weekdays with a mix of the day’s top stories and an in-depth segment in which Guth will interview a Crain’s reporter or columnist. ‘We are thrilled we can connect our journalists with Amy to kick off this product launch,’ said Jim Kirk, publisher and executive editor of Crain’s Chicago Business. ‘She is a terrific broadcaster and her experience as host of WGN’s ‘Wintrust Business Lunch’ makes this partnership with us a natural. I can’t wait to hear how she will shape this podcast for the Crain’s audience and beyond.’’ ‘The Daily Gist’ will be available at chicagobusiness.com, the WGN Plus podcast network and Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, or Spotify. It’s the first step in what’s expected to be a broader partnership between Crain’s and WGN Radio. Guth, former general manager/publisher of RedEye Chicago and former social media manager for Chicago Tribune Media Group, continues as a WGN host, executive director of the Midwest Independent Film Festival and president of Association for Women Journalists Chicago.”
