ESPN Chicago 1000’s Waddle & Silvy will celebrate its 10th anniversary with two live shows from El Dorado Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico, Memorial Day, Monday, and Tuesday, May 30, from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. ET. Former Chicago Bears receiver Tom Waddle and Marc “Silvy” Silverman will host and reminisce about some of their favorite moments alongside fans on Chicago’s number one-ranked Sports Show.
Silverman reflected on the 10th anniversary and stated, “Wow. A decade already?! In the spring of 2007, I was young, single, and in a championship drought. In the ten years we have spent together, I have gotten married, have two wonderful young sons, and got to watch in person, my favorite team, the Cubs, win their first championship in 108 years. Talk about milestones! While Waddle and I will not be together for 108 years, he will be a lifelong friend. He’s not only a former mediocre Bear and pretty good talk show host, he’s like a brother I never had. It’s truly a dream come true to laugh and have fun with him every day on the radio”!
Waddle also reflected on their time together and stated, “Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and happier is he who finds that true friend in his radio partner. I am not that man. Just kidding. I couldn’t ask for a better radio partner, and more importantly, a better friend.”
The two-day anniversary celebration will feature Waddle & Silvy with several on-site guests, longtime Waddle & Silvy friends, along with ESPN peers. Waddle & Silvy will reminisce about various milestones from the last 10 years on air. Attendees to this special broadcast include family, special guests, three winners and their guest from the recent Waddle & Silvy trivia contest and listeners who received the chance to purchase a “come-along” trip for a special rate.
Fans who are present at the location can win VIP seating to either broadcasting day as well as receive a special reception and welcome dinner with all guests and fans who traveled to celebrate this event.
