I am Bonnie “Hey Baby” DeShong and I have been a part of Chicago Radio for over 30 years. During my tenure as Co-host, Entertainment, and/or Traffic Reporter on WGCI, WVAZ, and WSRB. I worked side by side with radio greats, Tom Joyner, Doug Banks, John Monds, and Tony Richards.
I had my 15 minutes of national television fame in an episode of “The Martin Lawrence Show.” Locally I was a film critic for FOX 32 Chicago, guest Co-host on ABC-7 Chicago’s 190 North, and the Co-host of the City of Chicago’s “CHICAGO WORKS” show. I write entertainment articles for the Chicago/Gary Crusader newspaper, and Chicagonow.com. Theatre is my first love and I have done several productions with The Chicago Theatre Company, Goodman Theater, Victory Gardens Theater, ETA, and more.
I LOVE to travel and for 8 years was co-host with travel professional Ja’Vonne Harley on WVON-AM and HUR VOICES- Sirius/XM. We took our listeners to interesting destinations, discussed travel trends, and introduced new and wonderful experiences.I have interviewed everyone from Bob Hope to Barack Obama and enjoyed every minute.
Community has always been important to me so no matter what medium I was working in there was a community component to it. I was extremely excited to be chosen to be the Marketing and Community Relations Director for the DuSable Museum of African American History.
Now, I am the host of BONNIE’S EYE, a one-hour show heard on the Omni Channel 95.1 Chicago, Your Heartbeat for Soul. I have amazing conversations with interesting people with a lot of fun thrown in for good measure.
Bonnie’s Eye is like an Urban magazine show with a purpose. I try to educate with the purpose of leaving my audience informed.
Now that you know all about me, I hope that you will explore and enjoy the website.
Until next time, keep your EYE to the sky!
