LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwire – November 17, 2009) – Reed’s, Inc. (
WGN radio has been broadcasting to Chicagoland listeners for over 80 years. The Station is the home voice of the Cubs, Blackhawks and Wildcats professional sports teams.
“Garry Meier is a household name in Chicago,” commented Mr. Chris Reed, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Reed’s, Inc. “He’s a smart, witty and fun radio personality. He’s the kind of customer we love at Reed’s, and he obviously enjoys our products enough to have mentioned them previously on his show.
“Garry began mentioning our Reed’s Ginger Chews Candy recently and we saw a run on the products throughout the area. We sincerely appreciate his enthusiasm and when we reached out to WGN about it we immediately realized that this was a great opportunity for Reed’s. The timing is perfect for us to sit down and chat about the company as we are exhibiting at the Private Label Marketing Association (PLMA) 2009 Private Label Trade Show in Chicago November 15th -17th.”
Meier rose to prominence in Chicago as part of one of the most successful number one radio duos in the country, ‘The Steve & Garry Show.’ The fifteen-year run garnered international publicity, as well as an Emmy for the TV show ‘Greetings From Graceland.’ Meier also gained renown for his highly successful eight-year run on ‘The Roe & Garry Show.’ In addition to these accomplishments, Meier has displayed his wit and energy as a solo host and as a feature reporter for WGN-TV’s morning show.
