WGN-AM/Chicago will add "Your Money Matters" hosted by Jon Hansen to its weekday programming schedule, beginning Monday, February 7. Airing Monday through Thursday from 6-7pm, the program will feature topics including the basics of personal finance, investing and wealth management, financial security, financial literacy and retirement planning. Hansen will lead conversations with personalities and experts in the world of finance, offering a fresh take on complex issues.

"I'm looking forward to learning things along with the audience. Just like them, I'm someone looking for ways to save money, smart ways to spend money, and how to prepare my family for life's surprises," said Hansen. "I'm looking forward to engaging with experts who can help everyone - no matter their financial background. "Your Money Matters" will be a show driven by the listeners' questions with their needs and financial goals in mind - and I promise we'll have a lot of fun along the way."

"No one is more knowledgeable in hyper-local business and community news than Jon Hansen," said WGN Radio Vice President and General Manager Mary Sandberg Boyle. "He is the perfect host to navigate these challenging topics and make them relatable to our audience."

A native of Downers Grove and graduate of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Hansen is an Emmy winning radio, TV, and podcast host. He's hosted several programs on WCIU-TV including "You & Me," "The Jam" and "Chicago Food To Go." Hansen has also worked for Block Club Chicago, its predecessor DNAinfo, and has been with the Chicago Blackhawks since 2011 as emcee and in-arena stadium host. He also hosts "Let's Get Legal" on WGN Radio on Saturday afternoons.
