WABC Radio Host Mancow Acting on Fox Series

Updating a story we reported on Monday, syndicated radio host and WABC weekend talker Mancow will have a recurring role on the Fox drama The Chicago Code.

Mancow tells Talkers magazine,“Shawn Ryan, the creator of the acclaimed FX series, The Shield, and The Chicago Code is a fan of my radio show,”  Mancow says, “He put me in The Shield and now in The Chicago Code as his good luck charm.  It feels strange to be paid for this, because it’s such an honor and so cool to do!”

Mancow will play himself, a popular talk radio host, in at least three episodes.

The Chicago Code premiered Monday night.
