Chicago, IL.- WGN Reporter Dean Richards is this year’s Master of Ceremonies of the 10th PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation’s Gala on Saturday, June 16, 2012 at the Merle Reskin Theatre and the Hilton Chicago.

As a young boy, Dean Richards, Emmy Award winning entertainment reporter for WGN TV/Radio, would play “radio station” downstairs in the basement of his parents’ home. Upstairs his yiayia would be shouting “go outside and play!” What began as a hobby has turned into a successful career in broadcasting for Dean. He knows his grandmother would be very proud of him.
