A radio personality for over 30 years, Steve Cochran has hosted his own show from coast to coast settling in Chicago in the late 90’s.

Throughout all of those years Steve has performed Stand up comedy with many of the greats in the business. Steve loves Getting out and doing live performances about 4 Times a year including his annual Steve Cochran New Year’s Eve show, now in its 17th year! But What Steve is best at is hosting his own show and since coming back to WGN and being named the host of the WGN radio morning show from 6:00 to 10:00, following in the “mic-checks” of such legends as Wally Phillips, Bob Collins and Spike O’Dell, Steve has brought back the best morning talk show to its rightful place at Number one!

He has opened for big names like Ellen DeGeneres, George Lopez, Craig Ferguson and Billy Gardell and has appeared on NBC, Comedy Central and TBS. John Da Cosse has served as an audience warm-up for many television shows including the Rosie O’Donnell and Oprah Winfrey Shows. John can be seen at Zanies in the Chicagoland area, and all Funnybone and Improv comedy clubs across the United States. He can be heard, along with his character voices as a regular on the Steve Cochran morning show on WGN Radio.
Rocky LaPorte’s appeal comes from his everyman, streetwise style of comedy. Delivering laughs in his trademark Brooklyn accent, he has become one of the most sought after comedians in the country, and he just recently appeared on on the season 8 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing! Rocky received 5th place out of 10 contestants. A former Chicago truck driver and dock worker, Rocky has accumulated a slew of performances throughout his career, including being a featured comic on Showtime‘s The Godfathers of Comedy, a special starring five of America’s most hilarious Italian-American comics.
